What does Arthritis Research UK do?

Arthritis Research UK invests in breakthrough treatments, the best information and vital support for everyone affected by arthritis.

We believe that by harnessing the power of exceptional science we can overcome the pain, isolation and fatigue arthritis causes. Our work has already uncovered breakthrough treatments, and we’re dedicated to uncovering new ideas to help people push back the ways arthritis limits their lives.
