Rheuma Research Roadshow - London
Mon 24 April 2017, 13:00 – 16:00 BST
As a member of the London Support Group, we are delighted to invite you to this special event.
Anyone with Polymyalgia Rheumatica or Giant Cell Arteritis will agree that these conditions are under-researched. We all want to know more about what is happening in the world of research to find causes, treatments, and of course, a cure. This "research roadshow" event will bring patients and researchers together to find out what is happening locally. Queen Mary University of London houses a top immunopharmacology department. We are delighted that Professor Mauro Perretti will be joining us to share their latest work in the field of inflammation - its role in the healthy body, and what is happening when it goes wrong, as it does in GCA and PMR. We will also be sharing some of the highlights of previous roadshows round the country, and there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and discuss the issues raised.
The roadshow is part of a project to gather together research information from around the country and develop educational materials for health professionals.
This event is supported by a grant to PMRGCAuk from the Wellcome Trust
