The lab Rheumatology invited a group of voluntary collectors from the Dutch Arthritis Foundation, Nijmegen and surrounding area, to show them how and where money they collect is used in rheumatoid arthritis research. About 50 volunteers came to the laboratory of Rheumatology for a tour. They have been told how to apply for a project. And they had the opportunity to take a look in a microscope for cell cultures and cartilage damage.
"For our research projects we are 25/30 percent dependent on funds from the Dutch Arthritis Foundation. The voluntary collectors are very important for us", says Fons van de Loo, Dept. of Rheumatology, theme Inflammatory diseases.
