Rheumatology Research

Rheumatology includes some of the most common conditions of the joint, muscles and liagaments such as rheumatism, arthritis and osteoporosis.

Around 400,000 people in the UK are thought to have rheumatoid arthritis and a further 10 million people are estimated to have arthritis. It can affect people of all ages – even children and teenagers. Some forms of arthritis are more common in older people.

Specialist research

Our multidisciplinary research team of academic and clinical rheumatologists, nurses and allied health professionals works with patients, carers and families to find the most effective new treatments and therapies for these conditions.

We work closely with the University of Nottingham Rheumatology Division and with the research centres of excellence based at NUH including the Versus Arthritis Centre for Sport, Exercise and Osteoarthritis and the NIHR Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre.
