WHAT WE DO
Arthritis Research Canada is the largest clinical arthritis research centre in North America.
Our mission is to transform the lives of people living with arthritis through research and engagement. Led by Scientific Director, Dr. Diane Lacaille, Arthritis Research Canada’s scientific team of over 100 are creating a future where people living with arthritis are empowered to triumph over pain and disability.
Arthritis Research Canada is conducting research from coast to coast. With centres in British Columbia, Alberta, Quebec and Nova Scotia, Arthritis Research Canada is leading research aimed at preventing arthritis, facilitating early diagnosis, finding new and better treatments, and improving quality of life for people living with arthritis.
Strength training holds many benefits for those who do it regularly, including lower blood pressure and a reduced risk for type 2 diabetes, heart disease, anxiety, depression and more. However, individuals living with arthritis face many barriers to participating in strength training. Find out how our researchers are working to change this in Ep. 10 of the Arthritis Research Education Series: STRONG with Arthritis. Learn More
OUR LATEST RESEARCH
At Arthritis Research Canada, we conduct research that helps people with arthritis continue to live their lives today. What does that mean? Prevention is our top priority, but we are also working to find ways for people with the disease to stay in the workforce, continue doing physical activities they love, manage pain and symptoms and much more.
