The Vasculitis Foundation is the largest private funder of research on vasculitis and collaborates with researchers around the world to fund the most promising studies. The program is guided by the VF Scientific Advisory Board which reviews, critiques and ranks the applications and provides guidance to the VF Board of Directors on the selection of studies to fund.
The VF Research Program is funded by donations, honors, memorials and special fundraising events.
The VF hosted the 2nd International Vasculitis Research Consensus Conference on April 20, 2012. The purpose of the conference was to utilize the combined skills and experience of leading experts in vasculitis from different subspecialties and other scientific fields to evaluate the VF’s Research Program and explore new areas of inquiry that the Foundation should support over the next five years.
