Vitiligo Road Map - A Global Picture of Vitiligo Research
The interactive map below shows the various centers of vitiligo research around the world. To the best of our knowledge, this road map is the first of its kind.
The goal of the road map is to help individuals with vitiligo understand what is being done by various investigators across the globe, many of whom have been funded by the NVF. In addition, we hope the road map will promote collaborative interactions between scientists and physicians who are working on treatments and a cure for this disease.
To use the map, you have several options. You can use the bar below the map to zoom and move around. Or, you can use the roller wheel on your mouse to zoom and can pull on the map by holding down the left button of your mouse and dragging. If, at any time, you have difficulty with the map, just right-click and then left-click again. Alternatively, hit the refresh key on your browser.
Each site on the map is linked to a PDF document. Click on the site to launch the PDF. If you do not have the free Adobe Reader, you will need to install it by clicking here and following the instructions.
There are additional links within the PDF documents that you can click on for further information.
Please note that, for certain cities (such as Seoul, South Korea) there are more than one research center listed. In these cases, a different color is used for each facility.
We will continue to add new content to the map as we receive it. Click here if you would like to make a comment or request info on how to add your research center.
