Autoimmune diseases are complex and often overlap with each other. Research into these diseases is already lacking, and the overlapping conditions make understanding them all the more difficult. The best way to empower researchers to discover connections is through data, and a lot of it.
That is why AARDA created ARNet, the Autoimmune Research Network. A simple survey consisting of 27 questions is all it takes to progress research. The power is in the numbers. The more people who participate, the more accurate and reliable the information. It also becomes easier for researchers to identify patterns and trends to investigate. That is the key to locking future breakthroughs.
Advancing research into the category of autoimmune disease means throwing a boulder into the research pond rather than a pebble of a single disease. With your participation, you will help secure better information for autoimmune disease research.
