American College of Rheumatology Meeting

November 16, 2011

The American College of Rheumatology (ACR) held its 75th Annual Scientific Meeting in Chicago last week, and the Alliance for Lupus Research (ALR) was pleased to attend the extraordinary event.  Each year, the ACR hosts thousands of scientists and clinicians from around the world in this unique opportunity to network and share ideas with other innovators in the field of rheumatologic disease.

This year’s ACR Meeting was host to nearly 16,000 participants in attendance to learn about the latest research discoveries.  Among the many scientists attending, past and current ALR-funded scientists showcased research covering a broad spectrum of approaches and advances in the field over the past year.  Stay tuned for our annual American College of Rheumatology (ACR) Meeting Special Report - we look forward to sharing more information about innovative research in the months ahead.

Until then, we’ve highlighted just a couple of the many exciting projects discussed at the 2011 ACR Scientific Meeting:
