A 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity incorporated in the State of California on July 26, 2005.|
Details: The HSF was founded for the sole purpose of funding efforts to dissect the molecular and cellular causes of Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS, also known as Acne Inversa) to aid in the development and delivery of more effective therapy to patients with this common, debilitating, and eminently chronic disease that affects an estimated 1% of the population. This will be accomplished by fostering and encouraging worldwide research through the following activities:
Create an international and truly interdisciplinary “family” of scientists and physicians devoted to studying HS and its biological basis and to developing more effective forms of therapy and prevention.
Develop and maintain an informative, educational website for researchers, doctors, patients,and the friends, partners and family of affected patients.
Host an annual or biannual International HS Symposium as a public debate forum for exchanging new concepts and research findings on HS pathogenesis and management, and as a forum where new, productive international cooperative research efforts on HS are forged.
Offer start-up research grants to qualified scientists and physicians, with the explicit purpose to broaden the circle of researchers and doctors interested in HS and to encourage the brightest to devote their energies and creativity to HS research and management.
Seek corporate and private donations as well as government funding to support the pursuit of these goals via the HSF organization.
