The Versus Arthritis Research Fellows' Conference - a glimpse into the future of arthritis treatment

 
 
The annual Versus Arthritis Fellows' Conference took place in Birmingham earlier this month (11-12 May). Much to the delight of those attending, it was the first in-person Fellows' Conference for two years (the event was held virtually last year due to Covid-19). It was also the first time the charity had invited Research Partners (RPs).
