The 11th annual Investigators’ Meeting and the Rheumatology Research Workshop, held in June in San Francisco, were by all accounts great successes. California sunshine greeted more than 120 attendees as we came together to share the latest advances and updates in rheumatology research. These annual meetings have something for every research professional, whether you work in the lab, the classroom, or the clinic.

Professional meetings such as these provide our members with more than an opportunity to gain knowledge. Each year, these meetings serve as a forum where attendees connect, exchange ideas and share feedback that helps advance their work.
For two days, Foundation-funded researchers, rheumatology fellows, junior faculty, medical/graduate students and residents interested in a research career in rheumatology shared updates on their studies, networked, exchanged ideas and collaborated on future projects to advance treatments and cures for rheumatic diseases. Attendees were abuzz, exchanging new thoughts and ideas, and fueling future projects and collaborations. That is exactly what these meetings are supposed to be about.
