Our patient insight partners

To ensure that every decision we make and every piece of research we fund addresses the unmet needs of people with arthritis, we work with a group of people who have expert knowledge and lived experience of arthritis: our patient insight partner (PIP) group. Patient insight partners collaborate with us in all of our research activities, as well as working with us to train researchers and develop resources for the research community.
