Dear Colleagues,

I am delighted to present the third issue of the IRA e-newsletter in 2023. I would like to thank all the members for their appreciation and constructive feedback on the previous two issues.

Our editorial board has worked collectively to bring you diversified and exciting content.

In line with our vision for the e-newsletter “Be innovative and think of life more and science less”; executive editor for this issue, Dr Mohit Goyal has curated a collector’s volume with an exciting range of topics with contributors ranging from the doyens and experts from Indian rheumatology to our extremely talented younger members.

Please help us in taking this newsletter to as many as possible through our social media channels (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and YouTube).

What would you like to read? Please share your feedback and suggestions on

Dr Rajkiran Dudam and team are making wholehearted efforts to make the coming IRACON (IRACON 2023 – About Us) at Hyderabad a memorable one and I am as excited as you are at this opportunity to meet up!
