SCTC - Scleroderma Clinical Trials Consortium

Our Misson

The SCTC is an international consortium representing the vast majority of researchers and clinicians who have particular interest and expertise in the care of, and research in, scleroderma (systemic sclerosis).  The goal of the SCTC is to conduct, sponsor, or facilitate clinical research projects that lead to advances in the management, treatment, and outcomes of patients with scleroderma.  The SCTC aims to represent the views and interests of its membership regarding the performance of clinical research in scleroderma.  The SCTC seeks to ensure that research in scleroderma adheres to high standards for design, conduct, and reporting of results.  The SCTC is particularly focused on improving and developing outcome measures for clinical trials and observational studies, participating in the design and conduct of clinical trials and observational studies, and helping to improve the efficiency of clinical trials.  The SCTC strongly encourages international collaboration, inclusiveness in research groups, and involvement of trainees and junior faculty in all its activities.
