Canadian Arthritis Research Conference: Research with Impact

Canadian Arthritis Research Conference

The Arthritis Society (AS), Canadian Rheumatology Association (CRA), and CIHR-IMHA are co-hosting the third annual Canadian Arthritis Research Conference (CARC), virtually on Jan. 31 and Feb. 7-8, 2022. This conference will feature a range of presentations, discussions, and networking opportunities with experts, researchers, patient partners, and emerging leaders from the arthritis community.

The Canadian Arthritis Research Conference provides a unique platform for the arthritis research communities from across Canada to collaborate and share learnings among clinicians, scientists, patients and stakeholders nationally and internationally. There will be networking opportunities for all levels of trainees and researchers (clinical fellows and MSc/PhD/Postdoc/Medical Residents/etc.) to present and engage with consumer, researchers, clinicians, and other experts in the field.

If you are a part of the world of arthritis researchers, clinicians, patients, and trainees, we encourage you to consider attending this event. This conference (and its predecessor, the CAN Meetings of the early 2000s) have traditionally been well attended by rehabilitation researchers, other clinicians, basic scientists, patient partners, and health systems researchers.

Email us if you have any questions.

We look forward to seeing you virtually in 2022!
