The Brazilian Society of Inflammation (SBIn) had a namesake predecessor founded in 1998 and headquartered in the city of São Paulo. It existed until the middle of 2002 and was re-opened in 2015 with new objectives and headquartered in the city of Ribeirão Preto.
SBIn represents the community of Brazilian experts in the area of basic and clinical research that develop studies about inflammation. SBIn’s main mission is to disseminate knowledge about teaching and research on inflammatory diseases in Brazil regarding its basic and clinical aspects. It also aims to provide the interchange of studies in the area of inflammation among its associates as well as organize regular scientific meetings, teach refresher courses, promote fellowship programs and publicize studies and news regarding related areas through periodical newsletters.
The Center for Research on Inflammatory Diseases (CRID) was created to generate scientific knowledge and identify new therapeutic targets for inflammatory diseases. The Center relies on the expertise of researchers from various biomedical fields, integrating basic (geneticists, molecular and cell biologists, immunologists, pharmacologists, pathologists), and clinical (rheumatologists, clinical immunologists, infectologists, dermatologists) researchers, as well as investigators from the fields of computational medicinal chemistry, chemical synthesis and bioinformatics.
CRID’s general objective is to perform integrative and translational research to identify, validate and target known and novel biological pathways involved in the induction and resolution of inflammation. As a result, we expect the development of innovative therapeutic strategies and drugs that effectively target inflammatory diseases.
The Center also dedicates intense efforts to disseminate knowledge by sharing greater public awareness, promoting education on immunology and inflammation, and generating enthusiasm for science.
