Event description

Description

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. These are exciting times for PMR and GCA, with trials of new treatments, such as biologic drugs for GCA, and the promise of new techniques for diagnosis and monitoring, such as imaging. Our knowledge about the immune system, inflammation and what can go wrong, is also moving ahead rapidly. This "research roadshow" event will bring patients, clinicians and researchers together to find out what is happening locally and around the country. We are delighted that Dr Dahiya, Dr Poona Sharma, and members of the rheumatology team from the North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust will be joining us to talk about their work and how current research impacts on their clinical practice. 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
