The Centre for Epidemiology Versus Arthritis was established in 2013, building on the outstanding legacy of more than 60 years of epidemiological research at The University of Manchester.
We develop and deliver the highest quality epidemiological research by taking the best of our long-standing heritage, latest research innovations and new digital technologies.
Our mission is to improve the lives of people living with musculoskeletal conditions by leading the change in research methodology and clinical practice.
The Centre is currently funded by Versus Arthritis, the UK's largest charity dedicated to supporting people with musculoskeletal conditions. We are one of two Versus Arthritis Centres of Excellence based within the Centre for Musculoskeletal Research at The University of Manchester, the other being the Centre for Genetics and Genomics.
Our work is a continuing partnership between The University of Manchester and the University of East Anglia (UEA).
