Foundation for patient-centred research


We are dedicated to improving the care of people affected by rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases through supporting scientific research. We are a non-profit, tax-exempted Swiss foundation.


RheumaCura is led by patients and citizens who believe that the knowledge and experiences of those affected should be considered in medical research.


We believe that the involvement of patients and the public in the design and conduct of research will help to find better treatment and cures.


RheumaCura raises awareness and informs patients and the public about research, new treatments, and knowledge about how to best manage disease.


We believe in transdisciplinary approaches and will work cooperatively and transparently with other stakeholders and all those who share our vision.
