The collaboratively funded Arthritis and Aging Research Grant has been awarded to Brian Diekman, PhD of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for 2017.

Since 2012, AFAR and the Arthritis National Research Foundation (ANRF), the only charity solely focused on funding arthritis research to cure arthritis, have been partners to support arthritis projects that are related to the age-related processes.

Through the $100,000 ANRF/AFAR grant, Dr. Diekman--an Assistant Professor at the Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University--will research cellular senescence as a driver and therapeutic target for osteoarthritis (OA).
