The United Scleroderma Foundation will award five "seed" grants of $10 000 in 1988 for pilot projects of particular promise. Specific projects of young investigators are preferred, though new studies by established researchers will be considered. The proposed research project—its title, nature, and significance—should be described, preferably on one page. If acceptable, the foundation will invite the submission of a formal application. Address all communications to Denny L. Tuffanelli, MD, Department of Dermatology,
