  • To develop an understanding of the role of complement in autoinflammatory diseases

  • To understand the age-specific pathomechanisms involved in childhood-onset SLE

  • To highlight how understanding developments in other diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis in adults and cancer in children, can improve our understanding and management of paediatric rheumatic diseases

  • To help Allied Health Professionals develop research skills that will turn ideas into research projects

  • To understand how MRI can be used to guide treatment in Juvenile Dermatomyositis and an update on management of refractory disease
