New Approaches to Autoimmune Diseases
Exploring the collaboration between clinical, research and pharmaceutical perspectives and the impact for the patient.

There are more than 100 autoimmune diseases; including Crohn’s disease, Psoriasis, Rheumatoid arthritis, Lupus and Type 1 diabetes, to name only a few. The American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association reports that 50 million Americans suffer from autoimmune disease.
Ever wonder how cutting-edge scientific research can lead to cures and pioneering treatments for patients? Autoimmune research breakthroughs over the last decade have made this one of the most promising areas of new discovery.
Join us as we explore the impact of medical research on the future of human health as we host an exciting, unique speaker series: SBP Insights.
Scientists, doctors, patients and pharma come together for a panel discussion on the latest discoveries in autoimmune disease, followed by a Q&A session.
