Arthritis Research Unit

Arthritis is a growing concern for many practitioners, with over 3.85 million Australians suffering from it. What's more, by 2050, 7 million Australians will suffer from the disease.

For this reason, Professor Patrick McNeil and his team in the Arthritis Research Unit aim to investigate the underlying causes of the disease and how they are managed, in order to develop new or better treatments for people living with the debilitating disease. There are three active research programs underway that includes basic science into the disease, health service research and medical education/evaluation.

The Arthritis Research Unit's portfolio extends to include investigations into other related autoimmune diseases including Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), Gout, and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE).
