The Dragon Invited to be Part of A3BC
Despite major medical advances in treatment, not all people respond, many develop significant side effects, and there remain no cure or prevention for arthritis and musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions. The Australian Arthritis and Autoimmune Collaborative (A3BC) was formed in 2016 by leading Rheumatology clinicians and scientists from over 40 sites across Australia to enable world-class translational research. The A3BC vision is to give the right treatment at the right time for the best possible outcomes in children and adults with arthritis/MSK conditions across their lifespan and, ultimately, to find a cure.
We are very proud to be part of this initiative and as things develop will keep members informed.

As you move through the site and its many sections you will notice unusual art works, usually at the top of each main section. More will be added as time goes by. These images are street art from Sydney, Australia. We are using these images (with permission) to make the site distinctive and memorable. We particularly wanted to move away from clinical images and happy smiling faces which are so routine these days. Hope you like the images.
