Fondation Arthritis &
Clarins: A special connection.
Disheartened by the suffering his wife endured due to rheumatoid polyarthritis, Clarins Founder Jacques Courtin-Clarins established the Association for Polyarthritis Research in 1989.
In 2006, the Courtin-Clarins family transformed the organization into Fondation Arthritis — a nonprofit.
Its mission is to advance early diagnosis, new therapeutic pathways, and to restore hope to millions of patients.
All donations to Fondation Arthritis are devoted to funding research, including the discovery and evaluation of innovative therapies. The foundation also works to raise public awareness, help prevent the onset of arthritis, and improve the quality of life of those afflicted by the disease.
Resources: The foundation’s Scientific Board brings together renowned European researchers and rheumatologists. In 2016, more than 1 million euros will be granted to this field of research.
