Take part in research (Sweden)

Your participation drives osteoarthritis research forward.

Research studies are underway to deepen our knowledge about osteoarthritis (OA). Patients and other volunteers are very often needed for studies. Without research study volunteers, research would not be able to progress.

We are often looking for volunteers who want to and can participate in our research studies on OA. However, currently, all our research projects are located in Sweden and we are therefore only looking for volunteers based in Sweden.

Ongoing research studies
