Australian Arthritis and Autoimmune Biobank Collaborative (A3BC) and Australian Rheumatology Association Database (ARAD) investigators and staff recently attended the 2018 ARA Conference in Melbourne, Australia.

Principal Investigators Lyn March, Jane Munro and Catherine Hill presented an overview and growing developments of the A3BC and ARAD (soon to merge) to an enthusiastic audience as part of two presentations focused on Big Data in Health and A3BC-ARAD biobanking, patient-reported outcomes and broader data integration. The presentations were well received and spawned a great deal of interest and several collaborative discussions to learn more about the combined potential of the A3BC-ARAD.

The growing area of precision medicine in Rheumatology, with reference to the A3BC’s promising value, was reported by both SBS and Channel Seven News, as seen in the links below:
