Collective ambition ARC

The Amsterdam Rheumatology and Immunology Center (ARC) was established in 2015 as the umbrella network organization for the rheumatology and immunology research done in the Departments of Clinical Immunology and Rheumatology at AMC, the large rheumatology group practice at READE, and the Department of Rheumatology at VUMC, all located in Amsterdam.

With 17 Principle Investigators and over 60 researchers and staff, the ARC strives to research excellence in multiple areas within the field of Rheumatology and Immunology. We involve patients with rheumatic diseases in research and education, and we hope increasingly to be viewed, nationally and internationally, as trustworthy and innovative research partners by other researchers and funding agencies, both in basic and clinical research.

(Inter) nationally, we appeal to students, researchers, doctors and paramedics and our expertise is accessible to everyone.

In this way, the ARC makes an important contribution to society.
