Developing biomaterials to change the course of arthritis

Approximately 6 million Canadians live with arthritis, a group of debilitating diseases that causes the degradation of cartilage over time.

As a result of the destruction of cartilage, people with arthritis often suffer from considerable pain and decreased mobility — and there is currently no cure for the most common form of the disease.
