Our Mission
The mission of the Thurston Arthritis Research Center is to leverage advanced research, education and clinical expertise to investigate the causes and consequences of arthritis, autoimmune diseases and allergies. We are developing and testing new treatments to help reduce the impact of these diseases on patients and society.

Our Passion
Whether we are conducting sophisticated research in a laboratory, implementing population-based studies to better understand the causes and scope of diseases, educating future health care practitioners, or working with patients in our clinics, we are driven by a passion to make a significant and lasting difference for those we serve.

We believe that the intersection of research, education, and clinical care is where we can best address the needs of the scientific community, our patients, and our communities. We have held fast to this philosophy for over 35 years. It’s what drives us today…and every day.

Diversity and Inclusion
The Thurston Arthritis Research Center affirms that diversity in its broadest sense – embracing a range of backgrounds and life experiences – is critical for our mission to leverage advanced research, education and clinical expertise to investigate the causes and consequences of arthritis, autoimmune diseases and allergies.

We are committed to fostering and sustaining a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community, where all our members excel in a nurturing and welcoming environment.
