2013 Scleroderma Australia Fellowship Grant

The 2013 Scleroderma Australia Fellowship Grant has been awarded to the Australian Scleroderma Interest Group.

They have chosen Dr Tien Tay who will be undertaking the following project:

This project will be describing and quantifying damage in systemic sclerosis, using the damage descriptors developed by Mandy Nikpour (tentatively referred to as the 'ASIG Damage Index' (ASIGDI)), measuring the accrual of damage over time and assessing damage as a predictor of outcome. There is also scope to 'validate' our 'ASIG Damage Index' using the cohort established by the Canadian Scleroderma Research Group with whom ASIG has been developing a collaboration.
