The ANRF Chronicle | February 2019 Editorial Letter From Dr. Z

Zaher Nahle, PhD, MPAForward Momentum in Scientific and Community Partnerships!

 Dear Friend,

In previous issues, I shared with you many exciting news items about the growth of the Foundation and the research that we support. This issue is no different – we continue to shed light on the extraordinary discoveries made by our scientists and celebrate the accomplishments of our alumni. I am especially thrilled to update you today on two exciting milestones:

  • First, that ANRF has received the largest number of applications seeking research funding in its history. Submitted proposals are now undergoing a rigorous peer-review evaluation to select the most meritorious applications. Grants awarded by ANRF are a core component of our strategy to accelerate new discoveries, encourage participatory research and reduce barriers of entry for young investigators into the challenging fields of Arthritis, Rheumatology and Autoimmune diseases. Read more about this exciting news in the February chronicle!

  • Second, that we have launched a new website and engagement platform dedicated to the entire ANRF community. The new platform contains user-friendly technologies that can help you support the research we do in creative ways, making an even bigger impact. You will notice brand new categories for Recreational and Arts campaigns on this site. Additionally, an app and other online tools make it easier for any supporter to post relevant stories to social media or directly email friends, family, teammates and colleagues. To sign up, simply visit RacingForACure.org, pick a campaign you like and turn your passion into Impact!

 

With gratitude,

Zaher Nahle, PhD, MPA
Chief Executive Officer, ANRF
