From Bones to B Cell Biology

Five collaborating institutions will encompass research into the interacting factors, such as hormones, infection, environment and genes that cause bone and joint diseases. At the Royal Veterinary College research is focused on how bones and cartilage adapt to muscle power.

The Royal Free Hospital and UCL will provide expertise on inflammation and immunity. New 'smart' materials for the surface of replacement joints are being developed at the bone and mineral centre at UCL and at the Institute of Child Health, research into the genetic basis of juvenile arthritis and the feasibility of gene therapy is being carried out.
