RA-MAP: A Landmark Paper in the Immunological Mapping of Early Rheumatoid Arthritis.

This is an extraordinary paper. 

Congratulations to everyone involved.  Not only is this an important study, but the way it was done, team science at its best with shared authorship, open data sharing to public data repositories, open code sharing in accordance with both the spirit of FAIR as well as the letter of FAIR principles.

Good News: RA-MAP joins IMID-Bio

As many will know the RA-MAP consortium has joined forces with other consortia to better understand immune-mediated inflammatory diseases.

The IMID-BIO project brings together a number of consortia from across the UK.

This is the future of open collaborative research in science.

We are excited about this!
