Rheumatology Research

Rheumatology is an area of research that focuses on the treatment of chronic conditions that can affect our muscles, joints and bones.  Our Trust  hosts specialist Rheumatology research at our York and Scarborough sites.

Our primary area of research focuses on conditions that would fall under the category of inflammatory arthritis such as Rheumatoid Arthritis and Psoriatic Arthritis as well as inflammatory back conditions such as Ankylosing Spondylitis.  We also run studies that look at Osteoarthritis, the most common form of the rheumatology conditions.

Our research looks at the treatment, detection and prevention of such conditions and can also link in closely with research in the areas of Orthopaedics and MSK research.
