Come along to this drop-in event and find out from Dr Joe Hutton and his team how certain infections can spread to the joints, leading to temporary arthritis.

You will also be able to learn about the role of macrophages in fighting infection, joint biology and different types of arthritis. We will have a range of interactive tools, including arthritis-simulating gloves, that you can use to help understand what it feels like to have arthritis.
