We are really excited to announce that the first series of Research Roadshows is set for early 2017.
Anyone with Polymyalgia Rheumatica or Giant Cell Arteritis will agree that these conditions are under-researched. We all want to know more about what is happening in the world of research to find causes, treatments, and of course, a cure.
UK universities and teaching hospitals are among the top centres for PMR and GCA research in the world. PMRGCAuk is joining with our partners in key centres of research excellence around the country to answer your questions. Our research roadshow events are each half a day. They will bring patients, friends and family, general public and researchers together to find out what is happening locally and regionally. Each event will give a general overview but also explore a particular theme.
February 15th – Southend (Prof Bhaskar Dasgupta and team)
March 7th – Bristol (Dr Jo Robson, Prof John Kirwan and team)
March 9th – Birmingham (Dr Sue Mollan and team)
March 23rd – Keele, Staffs (Prof Christian Mallen and team)
March 30th – Leeds (Dr Sarah Mackie and team)
A second set of roadshows is being planned for the summer and autumn including London, Cambridge, Peterborough and Sheffield.
PLEASE DO NOT USE THE HELPLINE NUMBER TO BOOK YOUR PLACES FOR THE RESEARCH ROADSHOWS. YOU CAN BOOK ONLINE OR CALL 0300 999 5090 leaving your NAME, EMAIL ADDRESS and PHONE NUMBER. Please note we will reserve your place and contact you before the event you book but we are unable to call back as we are a very small number of volunteers who are working to full capacity.
The Roadshows project is supported by the Wellcome Trust.
