The Centre for Epidemiology Versus Arthritis addresses clinically important questions in musculoskeletal disease that require a robust epidemiological approach.
Generous support from Versus Arthritis (formerly Arthritis Research UK) allows us to offer fully-funded PhD studentships at The University of Manchester.
