EULAR Registers and Observational Drug Studies (RODS)

This open congress has the aim to discuss both practical and theoretical issues around running registers and longitudinal observational drug studies, generating output and understanding their results.

The annual / biennial meeting will provide an opportunity for networking and development of international collaborative studies.

  • Experienced drug register researchers
  • Early-career investigators
