About ICAARe PDF Print E-mail

The Saskatchewan Institute of Child and Adult Arthritis Research [ICAARe] comprises a unique array of studies bridging gaps between pediatric and adult rheumatic diseases. ICAARe believes that by collaborating with a variety of researchers, we will effectively advance knowledge that improves patient care and outcomes and strengthens research capacity by mentoring colleagues, training students and generating new infrastructure resources.


The four cornerstones of ICAARe are research, knowledge translation, training and infrastructure capacity development. ICAARe will embrace and integrate biochemical, clinical, social, cultural, environmental and population health research resulting in improved health care delivery. ICAARe will facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration amongst scientists within the College of Medicine and from a variety of other departments and colleges within the University of Saskatchewan. Further, the creation of a discrete Centre will help promote the Institute’s leadership role nationally and internationally to improve the health and well-being of children and adults with rheumatic diseases.
