Exploring areas of research

My name is Lianne Kearsley-Fleet and I am a researcher at The University of Manchester.

I have previously looked at which biologic therapies children and young people with JIA use in the UK, and how well the drugs work. I am now starting to think about my own research path and am particularly interested in looking at those children and young people who are now young adults, where there is currently limited information available.

I would like to present below some areas I am thinking of researching and would value your feedback as to whether it is an area of interest to you as adolescents and young adults with rheumatic diseases.

Don't forget to add your name and contact details at the end of this survey so that we can send you your voucher for participating.
