“We’re proud and excited about all the research we support,” said Dr. Sian Bevan, Chief Science Officer at the Arthritis Society. “Our annual list of the Top 10 enables us to shine a spotlight on some of the projects that really stood out for their potential impact in the fight to stop arthritis. Congratulations, and thank you to the researchers we’ve highlighted.”

The Arthritis Society is grateful for the generous support of our donors. They made it possible to invest $4.3M in research last year.

The Arthritis Society is Canada’s largest charitable funder of cutting-edge arthritis research, investing more than $200 million in research projects since our founding. These projects have led to breakthroughs in the diagnosis, treatment and care of people with arthritis.
