Arthritis research is innovative, life-changing and needed now more than ever – and you have a unique opportunity to hear about it from the scientists themselves!

As a valued donor, you’ll get a rare opportunity to hear directly from two leading arthritis researchers: Dr. Andy Kin On Wong and Dr. Anthony Perruccio. They’ll share updates on their work in understanding osteoarthritis that will hopefully lead to improved treatments. It’s because of your kind support this research progress is possible.

Don’t miss out on these two illuminating presentations at this special supporters-only event on Tuesday, March 26. A live Q&A session with both researchers and Arthritis Society Canada senior leaders will follow – register today to secure your spot!

Dr. Andy Kin On Wong

Dr. Andy Kin On WongDr. Andy Kin On Wong, a Scientist at University Health Network (UHN), will join us to discuss his ongoing research on osteoarthritis knee pain in postmenopausal women. He is using medical imaging to explore the impact of estrogen loss on fat accumulation and inflammation, bone damage and how this causes pain.

“My work on postmenopausal knee osteoarthritis wouldn’t have been possible without the generous support of Arthritis Society Canada donors, and I’m excited to share our discoveries of how muscle and fat exacerbate the fire of arthritis at this year’s Research Summit.”
-Dr. Andy Kin On Wong

Dr. Anthony Perruccio

Dr. Anthony PerruccioDr. Anthony Perruccio, a Senior Scientist also at UHN, will join us to examine his research focused on osteoarthritis. He will discuss his project, which recently concluded, on whether the patterns of inflammatory markers in joints is important to study. The work also explores whether sex differences in these markers might play a role in improving treatment for osteoarthritis pain.

“Philanthropy is essential to my research, and I can’t thank Arthritis Society Canada donors enough for their support. I’m excited to discuss the success you’ve helped to enable at the Research Summit!”
-Dr. Anthony Perruccio
