Barbara Ansell National Network for Adolescent Rheumatology (BANNAR)


Arthritis Research Centre for Adolescent Rheumatology has set up a steering committee to advise on the oversight, development and review of a portfolio of research for adolescents and young adults (AYA) aged 10-24 in the UK. In tribute to the pioneering work of Barbara Ansell in this field, the group is called the Barbara Ansell National Network for Young Adult Rheumatology – BANNAR. The network has a wide range of membership and prioritises young peoples’ involvement in research.

BANNAR’s first project is underway and involves the effective participation of young people in research.


BANNAR had a call for membership in Spring 2013 which has resulted in a network of interested and committed professionals from both paediatric and adult rheumatology, to help guide research in the field of adolescent rheumatology.

BANNAR meets twice a year and membership remains open so please contact us if you would like more information.

If you have any questions or would like more
information please contact Dr Rachel Tattersall rachel.tattersall@sth.nhs.uk or
Research Co-ordinator, Brenda Bell brenda.bell@ucl.ac.uk
