Centre for Arthritis and Rheumatic Diseases Call
18th November (for completion of pre-application form. Full applications will be invited from shortlisted applicants thereafter with a closing date of Jan 24th 2020)
Inflammatory Arthritis is a chronic autoimmune disease characterized by synovial inflammation and subsequent destruction of cartilage and done, leading functional disability. A significant proportion of patients have sub-optimal or no response to our current treatments. Thus focused research is needed to better understand the underlying disease processes, specifically at the site of inflammation, the synovium, in order to identify molecular profiles that may predict progression, response and identification of new therapeutic targets. Therefore the focus of this call is to fund research aimed at understanding molecular pathways/mechanisms at the single cell level in synovial tissue, from well defined cohorts of patients with inflammatory arthritis (RA and PsA), using high-throughput technologies and bioinformatic approaches. Applications must be translational patient focused research.
