Overview & Instructions
Without the Arthritis Foundation, I would not be in academia today. I was funded by the Foundation as a fellow in 1996 when I was starting my third year of training and needed bridge funding. I later went on to win an Arthritis Investigator award from the Foundation that allowed me to get my faculty position at Stanford. I now have a lab with a dozen young scientists in training. We have made seminal advances in diagnostics, novel treatment regimens, clinical trials, and in educating hundreds of young scientists' from high school up through junior faculty.

Arthritis Foundation is the only national not-for-profit organization that
supports the more than 100 types of arthritis and related conditions. Founded
in 1948, the Arthritis Foundation has multiple service points located
throughout the country. The Arthritis Foundation is the largest private,
not-for-profit contributor to arthritis research in the world, funding more
than $380 million in research grants since 1948. The foundation helps people
take control of arthritis by providing public health education; pursuing public
policy and legislation; and conducting evidence-based programs to improve the
quality of life for those living with arthritis.
Arthritis Foundation, Northern California Office, is headquartered in San
Francisco and serves 16 counties, stretching from the Oregon border in the
north to San Benito County in the south. We serve the more than two million
adults and children who live with arthritis in Northern California. The
Northern California Office consistently ranks as one of the premier
offices of the 43 Arthritis Foundation offices nationwide.
