The project

The project aims to identify

  • Why Rheumatoid Arthritis begins
  • Where it starts and why it attacks the joints
  • Why it persists
  • Whether we can develop new treatments

It will do this by

  • Bringing together researchers from three leading universities
  • Recruiting the best young scientific minds
  • Engaging with patients to guide our research
