Arthritis Research Partners

Partnerships are at the heart of successfully reaching mutual goals. At the Arthritis National Research Foundation, our goal is to cure arthritis through research. Each of our partners feels just as passionately as we do about the need for research to find more effective treatments and cures. We are proud to partner with these organizations.

American Federation For Aging Research

American Federation For Aging Research

Since 2012, AFAR has partnered with the Arthritis National Research Foundation to support an arthritis project related to the aging process. Founded in 1981, AFAR has championed the cause and supported the funding of science in healthier aging and age-related medicine. To address the shortage of physicians and researchers dedicated to the science of healthier aging, AFAR funds physicians and scientists probing the fundamental mechanisms of aging, as well as specific diseases associated with aging populations.

National Psoriasis Foundation

National Psoriasis Foundation

National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) is the world’s largest nonprofit serving those with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. Our priority is to provide the information and services for people to take control of their condition, while increasing research to find a cure. In addition to serving more than 2.1 million people annually through our education and advocacy initiatives, NPF has funded more than $10 million in psoriatic disease research grants and fellowships.


“I am pleased and excited about this collaboration between the ANRF and the National Psoriasis Foundation. The need for research in psoriatic arthritis exceeds the capabilities of any one organization. The research grant to be funded in partnership by the ANRF and the NPF represents just the sort of support that is needed to make a difference for those suffering from psoriatic arthritis.” – Michael Siegel, Ph.D. – Senior Vice President, Research and Clinical Affairs, NPF

The Sontag Foundation

The Sontag Foundation

From 2001-2011, The Sontag Foundation partnered with the ANRF to sponsor The Sontag Foundation Fellow of the Arthritis National Research Foundation to support rheumatoid arthritis research. In 2011, Rick and Susan Sontag had a different idea as to how they would like to support RA research. The Sontag’s had decided that instead of supporting projects year-to-year they would like to do something a bit more substantial and awarded ANRF with a check for one million dollars to support rheumatoid arthritis research well into the future.


The Arthritis National Research Foundation is so thankful to have The Sontag Foundation as our partner and invite you to read more about their gift or click here to learn more about The Sontag Foundation.
