Our clinical studies

Medical professionals sat at a table talking

We fund clinical studies across all types of arthritis and musculoskeletal disease. Our studies are looking at all types of treatments including drugs, physiotherapy, psychological treatments and surgery.

Our list of current clinical studies (PDF 308 KB) contains details of all the studies that are currently active grouped by condition, and a link to more information. This list is updated regularly.

How can I take part in a clinical study?

Studies usually take place in several locations around the UK. You can find out whether a particular study is taking place locally to you either by asking your healthcare professional or visiting the website for that study. The website should include contact details for the study team who will be able to advise you. Please note that all studies have strict criteria about who can take part.
