The Arthritis Society is pleased to announce the upcoming national Canadian Arthritis Research Conference, presented in partnership with the Canadian Rheumatology Association (CRA) and CIHR-IMHA. The conference will take place ahead of the 2020 CRA & AHPA Annual Scientific Meeting in Victoria B.C.  

The Canadian Arthritis Research Conference will bring together allies in the arthritis ecosystem - trainees, people living with arthritis, national and international scientists and clinicians, and others - to explore perspectives, advance knowledge and enhance Canadian leadership in the world of arthritis and rheumatic diseases.  

National and international speakers will present on the following themes:  

  1. Living Well: Easing Pain through Research
    • Presenters include: Dr. Yves De Koninck, Dr. Yvonne Lee and members of the Canadian Pain Task Force 
  2. New Approaches to Inflammation and Tissue Repair
    • Presenters include: Jack Hornecker, Dr. Cosimo de Bari and Dr. Rae Yeung
  3. Getting Hooked on Big Data Science

Through collaborative presentations and group conversations, the programs will collectively highlight current research and approaches to pain, inflammation and tissue repair, and the integration of open source data in clinical applications.
