Remit and terms of reference

We aim to focus our attention on potential clinical trials in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus, Sjögren's syndrome, myositis, vasculitis, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome and scleroderma. The principle aim is to identify research questions within each of the diseases which have been inadequately addressed (if at all) in the past and to develop proposals which can realistically answer them.
