The Canadian Scleroderma Research Group (CSRG)
The Canadian Scleroderma Research Group (CSRG), under the direction of Dr. Murray Baron of the Montreal Jewish General Hospital, was officially created in spring 2004. Its ultimate goal is to increase the capacity to perform scleroderma research in Canada.
In order to achieve their objectives, the CSRG has developed a pan-Canadian registry of scleroderma patients. It has also formed a multidisciplinary, cross pillar team to perform high impact research in Sclerodermalikely to have significant benefits.
They work with scientists from inside and outside the field of scleroderma (mainly rheumatologists, cardiologists, lung specialists, gastroenterologists, dermatologists, dentists, psychologists, and epidemiologists) and train new scientists in relevant scleroderma research.
