Project Details

What We Need
  • Development of a new website using a Content Management System (CMS)
  • Training to ensure Organization's staff members can update content and manage the site post-launch

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a Wordpress template identified and a visual design guide, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a current website with content, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to fund important research that may lead to a new treatments for those suffering from systemic scleroderma.

Our Mission

Our primary goal is to provide comprehensive, up-to-date, research-based information on systemic scleroderma diagnosis and treatments. We believe that patients who are educated about their disease can work more effectively with their team of physicians to make the best possible individual care decisions.

We are also focused on research to test a novel disease pathogenesis model that we originally proposed in 1993. If this disease model turns out to be correct, it is likely to lead to new treatments for systemic scleroderma that are more effective and much safer than current, largely ineffective, treatments that are currently being used.


I have been a serial entrepreneur over the past 40 years and worked with a lot of talented people over the years. Julian would be in the top 1% of that group. He is very skilled, very easy to work with, and did outstanding work on our new website. He was always quick to respond to requests and was always able to solve issues that were sometimes very complicated, e.g., getting the website to work well on everything from computers to phones. The fact that he is in London was never a problem, as he seems to like working late hours. :-) I would highly recommend Julian to anywhere who is trying to develop a new website.

Website Construction (CMS-Based) Project

I worked with the founder Ed Harris to construct a new website using Wordpress. Ed was very easy to work with and at the same time very thorough. The final result has resulted in positive feedback and I believe that is the result of our working together effectively and efficiently. Would highly recommend the Scleroderma Education Project to anyone else looking to volunteer with a non profit organisation.
