Leading Research. Finding Answers. Saving Lives.
Our mission is to transform the lives of people living with arthritis through research and engagement.
Our vision is a future where research-based services, tools and knowledge empower people living with arthritis to triumph over pain and disability.
Arthritis Research Canada was created in 2000 by the world renowned scientist Dr. John Esdaile and a dedicated Board of Directors who shared a vision to conduct practical research for everyday living. Today, Arthritis Research Canada is home to four centres, in British Columbia, Alberta and Quebec (at both Laval and McGill universities), and a multi-disciplinary team of over 100 scientists and research staff who are recognized as world leaders in clinical arthritis research excellence. Arthritis Research Canada is dedicated to understanding, advancing and sharing knowledge about the cause of arthritis and addressing the issues that impact the lives of people living with the disease. We conduct consumer-driven, clinical research aimed at arthritis prevention, early diagnosis, better treatment and improved quality of life.
Research that can be put into the hands of those who need it most - right now!
