Summership Research Grant
Sjögren’s (pronounced SHOW-grins), also known as Sjögren’s Disease, or Sjögren’s Syndrome, is a chronic, systemic, inflammatory autoimmune disease that usually attacks and damages the salivary, tear and mucous secreting glands. This results in dry mouth, dry eyes, or even internal organ damage, arthritis, painful weak muscles, neuropathy, and debilitating fatigue. The disease can result in multiple systemic features and have a profound affect on quality of life. The Sjögren’s Society of Canada is offering two $4000.00 grants to Undergraduate or Graduate Student specialty trainees in Dentistry, Optometry, Ophthalmology or Medicine for summer support research pertinent to Sjögren’s.
- The grants are aimed at providing summer salary support for any project that can be expected to be completed and result in an abstract or publication.
