Imagine a world without alopecia areata

NAAF’s Alopecia Areata Treatment Development Program (TDP) was launched with one bold vision: to create a world without alopecia areata. This program brings together the alopecia areata community of scientists, doctors, government agencies, patients, and patient advocacy organizations at yearly gatherings in an effort to speed up and improve research toward safe, effective, and affordable treatments for the millions of people just like you who live with alopecia areata.
