We believe that patients should have a say in research that is potentially for their benefit. The Birmingham Rheumatology Research Patient Partnership (R2P2) is a group of patients who are actively involved in the work of the Rheumatology Research Group in the Institute of Inflammation and Ageing, University of Birmingham. R2P2 members advise our researchers about what research we should do, how we should go about it and how we can share it with the public.
