SAVE THE DATE: Canadian Arthritis Research Conference – Taking Collaborative Action
February 25-26 2020 • Victoria
Looking for one more reason to make the trip to Victoria this February? Look no further!
Co-presented by the Arthritis Society, the CRA and Canadian Institutes of Health Research/Institute of Musculoskeletal Health and Arthritis (CIHR/IMHA), the inaugural Canadian Arthritis Research Conference takes place February 25-26 (right before the CRA AHPA Annual Scientific Meeting), and will bring together multidisciplinary stakeholders to explore perspectives, advance knowledge and enhance Canadian leadership in the world of arthritis and rheumatic diseases.
The program content focuses on three key themes in arthritis research: pain, inflammation and tissue repair, and big data science. An exciting array of presentations and discussions will identify current advances and explore priority areas for future investigation.
“The challenges of arthritis are too great for any one lab or organization to overcome,” says Scientific Program Committee Chair Dr. Hani El-Gabalawy, Professor of Medicine and Immunology and Endowed Rheumatology Research Chair at the University of Manitoba, and former Scientific Director of CIHR-IMHA. “Opportunities like this to collaborate and share learnings among clinicians, scientists, patients and stakeholders are essential. We look forward to some very engaging discussions.”
This event requires separate registration from the CRA-AHPA ASM. Spaces are limited, so please visit www.arthritis.ca/researchday.
