Defining the inflammatory T cell landscape in Ankylosing Spondylitis

The Experimental Rheumatology team, led by Associate Professor Tony Kenna, has just been awarded an NHMRC Ideas grant to fund research that will better define the role of T cells in the common inflammatory arthritis disease Ankylosing spondylitis. Ankylosing spondylitis affects the joints of the spine and pelvis.  Results from this project are expected to lay the foundation for new Ankylosing spondylitis treatments.
