Through research and partnership, CAN has created innovative solutions for issues surrounding the understanding and treatment of arthritis.
Linking nearly 200 of Canada's leading arthritis researchers and clinicians, the Network developed integrated transdisciplinary multi-institutional teams of highly qualified experts. These groups are involved in collaborative research projects and include basic scientists, clinical researchers, social scientists, and bioengineers, as well as partners in industry and government.
All of CAN's research projects were peer-reviewed by the Scientific and Medical Advisory Council (SMAC), an international group of leading scientific and medical experts, for scientific excellence and value, such as the potential for intellectual property and decreasing the economic burden of arthritis.
