Brigham and Women's researchers get $6M grant

Researchers from Brigham and Women's Hospital have won a five-year, $6 million grant from the National Institute of Arthritis, Musculoskeletal and Skin Disorders. The grant will allow them to study hip replacements in Medicare patients, to investigate the genetics of rheumatoid arthritis and to conduct a randomized trial of osteoporosis medication compliance, the hospital said.

Director Dr. Jeffrey N. Katz, associate professor of medicine and orthopedic surgery at Harvard, and associate director Dr. Elizabeth Karlson, associate professor of medicine at Harvard, will lead researchers from the division of rheumatology, immunology and allergy, the division of pharmacoepidemiology and the department of orthopedic surgery.
