Scleroderma, Vasculitis & Myositis Center

Scleroderma, Vasculitis & Myositis Center

Scleroderma and Vasculitis are major areas of investigation and clinical care at HSS. We have been a site for pivotal trials in Vasculitis, and with the establishment of the Rudolph Rupert Scleroderma Center have emerged as a leading institution for scleroderma research. Myositis and related conditions are also areas of focus. We have created an infrastructure for clinical, translational, and basic research in Scleroderma, Myositis and Vasculitis, as well as for community outreach and patient and physician education.

Education Webinars and Presentations

Increasing Awareness

HSS has been instrumental in bringing attention to Scleroderma, Vasculitis and Myositis. We here at the SVM Center want to further those efforts by highlighting these conditions throughout the year. Please join us as we spread awareness in:

  • May as Vasculitis Awareness Month and Myositis Awareness Month
  • June as Scleroderma Awareness Month
  • September 21 as National Myositis Awareness Day

Our hope is to not only to bring these diseases to light, but to also bring this community of patients together in their fight.
