Donations to the ASIG research program

The Australian Scleroderma Interest Group undertakes research projects into scleroderma.

ASIG would like to thank patients and their families who have generously donated to the ASIG research program.

Donations to the ASIG research program are used to:

  • Fund blood sample research which we hope will help to explain why some people develop the serious complications associated with scleroderma - $30 would cover the cost of one sample
  • Maintain the national database, a vital part of rare disease research - $250 would provide the hardware to link one researcher to the online database
  • Contribute to a scholarship for a PhD student - Rheumatology Consultants or Registrars who choose a career in research undertake a three year research degree. ASIG is committed to sponsoring one student per year who is interested in focusing on scleroderma and contributing to a better understanding of this rare disease.


Donations to ASIG cannot be claimed as tax deductions.
