Dr Arthur Pratt was appointed Clinical Senior Lecturer at Newcastle University in 2019; he has worked as Honorary Consultant Rheumatologist at Newcastle Hospitals NHS Trust since 2014.
His research focusses on trying to improve outcomes for people with rheumatoid and other forms of inflammatory arthritis through a better understanding of the disease processes that occur in the immune system to initiate these conditions. Arthur plays a key role in the NIHR Newcastle BRC’s Musculoskeletal Research Theme, collaborating widely, both inside and outside the UK. The Theme’s work is greatly enhanced by input from our local Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement in Musculoskeletal Research (PIMS).
Arthur is the Chief Investigator of the Northeast Early Arthritis Cohort, working closely with the NIHR Clinical Research Facility. He serves as Principle Investigator for a number of clinical trials in Experimental Rheumatology, including, Newcastle led study called TRAFIC.
