Future of key musculoskeletal research centre secured

A multi-million pound investment has secured the future of a joint University and NHS research centre specialising in rheumatology, musculoskeletal diseases and joint replacement.


The research facility at Chapel Allerton Hospital has been recognised as a Biomedical Research Centre by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) – and comes with £7million of research funding from NIHR.


There are just 20 NIHR Biomedical Research Centres in the UK, and the Leeds team is the only one specialising in musculoskeletal research.


The centre is led by Professor Paul Emery, whose research publications in the field of rheumatology are the most cited in Europe.
