Research Focus

As the world’s largest nonprofit contributor to arthritis research since 1948, the Arthritis Foundation provides innovative grants that empower young and established scientists to study enterprising new ideas that could lead to the miracle drugs of the future. Our grant program draws proposals from the most talented scientists across the country. A vigorous peer review process with top, well-established medical experts ensures that the proposals we accept are of the highest quality.

Our leadership in arthritis research does not stop at grant funding. We drive the world’s arthritis research agenda by developing and supporting specialized, targeted research initiatives that we believe will push us toward a cure. To accomplish these large initiatives, we forge and lead partnerships with other health agencies, foundations, and private industry partners.
