Our Research: Musculoskeletal

Our aims

We aim to introduce a ‘treat smarter’ approach to musculoskeletal disorders by applying a P4 Medicine strategy, working to:

  • Prevent inflammatory arthritis where possible
  • Personalise care by discovering biomarkers that can be used to select the most effective treatment / intervention for a given patient
  • Predict which of the most promising new treatment strategies will be effective in patients
  • Empower patients to participate in their own healthcare and improve clinical outcomes
