Arthritis Society funds arthritis research in Canada
The investment seeks to advance scientific understanding of arthritis. Researchers hope to learn new ways to manage the disease, to allow them to improve the quality of life for 4.6 million people in Canada who have the disease.
"We are thrilled with this year's selected recipients," Kate Lee, vice president of research and career development at the Arthritis Society, said. "We continue to be impressed by the high caliber of research and innovation being conducted by the Canadian research community, and how this important work stands to benefit the lives of people with arthritis."
Canada is one of the world’s leaders in researching arthritis. Unfortunately, funding for these projects have reached an all-time low in Canada. This makes the investment from the Arthritis Society especially important. With these funds, the nation can guarantee that its best scientific minds will be working to improve life and develop a cure for people with arthritis.
"Funding remains the largest single obstacle to delivering real, lasting solutions for people living with arthritis," Janet Yale, Arthritis Society president and CEO, said. "We are very grateful to our donors for their generosity in making these investments possible, and we hope that more join the cause, because we know that there's so much more work still to be done to help people whose lives are eroded by this devastating disease."
