Conference Support

PeDRA greatly appreciates the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS/NIH) for sponsorship and funding of the Annual Conferences via R13 grant awards.

PeDRA is particularly grateful to patient advocacy organizations for their support of the Annual Conference. Patient advocacy organizations attend the Conference and provide the vital link between our research and the patient perspective. Even given limits on resources, these advocacy groups have specifically chosen to include PeDRA and pediatric dermatology research as a priority.

We acknowledge and thank these organizations for their generous contributions to the Annual Conference:

Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation (EBMRF)
National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF)
Nevus Outreach
Foundation for Ichthyosis and Related Skin Types (FIRST)
National Eczema Association (NEA)
Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa Research Association of America (DEBRA)
National Alopecia Areata Foundation (NAAF)
National Organization of Vascular Anomalies (NOVA)
Pachyonychia Congenita Project
PHACE Syndrome Community
Sturge-Weber Foundation

PeDRA also extends a sincere thank you to our industry alliances who have supported PeDRA’s organizational growth and development. A portion of those funds have supported the Annual Conference.
