The University of Arizona Arthritis Center is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of patients.  We do this through research ranging from molecules to people, by empowering patients in taking charge of their lifestyles and by educating providers/clinicians and scientists to develop and apply novel and more effective therapies.

Welcome to the University of Arizona Arthritis Center

Message from the Director

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the University of Arizona Arthritis Center. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that one in three adults has some type of arthritis. Our vision is living a life free of arthritis through excellence in research, patient care, education and community outreach. This vision will be achieved through maximizing our abilities, passion and resources.
