About us

The Arthritis Portal is an initiative by researchers at Lund University with the aim to share accurate and up-to-date information about osteoarthritis including the latest developments in osteoarthritis research.

The Arthritis Portal has been made possible to launch thanks to generous contributions from The Foundation for Assistance to the Disabled in southern Sweden (Stiftelsen för bistånd åt rörelsehindrade i Skåne).

The Arthritis Portal's content has been created in collaboration with researchers from the LOAD (Lund OsteoArthritis Division) network. The two leading people behind the portal are:
