Through our research, we strive towards a paradigm shift from focusing on disease and disability to a focus on the investigation and implementation of prevention, early detection and effective treatment in the community, workplace, and healthcare system. This includes promoting self-management strategies, physical activity, and exercise to improve muscle and joint function and general health. We strive to fulfill this through collaboration with research partners, patient and professional organization and SMEs to create value and impact.
