The Arthritis National Research Foundation’s mission is to provide initial research funding to brilliant, investigative scientists with new ideas to cure arthritis and related autoimmune diseases.
For more than 40 years, the Arthritis National Research Foundation (ANRF) has funded arthritis research to understand the causes, preventions and development of new treatments for osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, juvenile arthritis and other autoimmune diseases.
ANRF provides arthritis research grants to scientists at major universities and research institutes across America. One- and two-year arthritis research grants allow these newer scientists to develop their important research to a stage where it can be continued and further supported by other national agencies.
Both my grandmother and mother suffer from arthritis. I had to see them struggle with the terrible disease for a long time now. Many other Americans suffer as well, it is time we join forces and fight for those in need.
