For over two decades, the Thurston Arthritis Research Center has been at the forefront of both basic science and clinical research in rheumatic disease and immunologic disorders.

The Thurston Arthritis Research Center has been ahead of the curve by integrating such diverse research components as statistical and data analysis, bioinformatics, genomic and proteomic research, clinical and social research. Thurston  has developed with the working knowledge that for a research environment to be viable and effective it can't be one dimensional but must be comprised of research components that share data, knowledge and resources to create an effective research center.
