Type of institution
RCRD is the national recognized centre for the study of various aspects of rheumatic diseases ("from genome to cell and disease"). It was developed in 2001 and re-certified in 2005. In 2005 RCRD won a 950.000 EURO EC grant for "the best / most promising Romanian research center in LSH area". The center is located in Bucharest, being a part of the largest Medical University in Romania - "Carol Davila University". It is very active in FP6 - being coordinator for ARMS project and national consultant in MENTOR programme (Mentor is a FP6 funded project that intend to train 4 best organisation from each Central and East European Countries with the final aim to develop a network of local professional consultants in FP6/7 activities). RCRD is the most important Romanian research centre on rheumatic diseases (and one of the most active from our medical community) with a very effervescent activity. Several facts support these affirmations: From the total number of titles presented during the 2004 Congress of Romanian Society of Rheumatology (posters and oral presentations) more than 25% had authors from our centre. 1 From the total number of Romanian titles presented during the 2004 EULAR - European League Against Rheumatic diseases Congress (posters and oral presentations) more than one third had authors from the present proposal team (12 / 31). 2 Twice a month our unit organizes scientific meetings for young researchers offering them the opportunity to present their activity and to freely interact with other members of our centre (this activity started more than 7 years ago) 3 Four times per year, our centre, in cooperation with the Romanian Society of Rheumatology (Bucharest branch), organizes local meetings for senior researchers on Rheumatic diseases (this activity started more than 10 years ago) 4 Several members of our centre are (or have been) deeply involved in the life of Romanian Society of Rheumatology : Prof. Popescu Eugen and Prof. Suteanu Stefan have been Presidents of our society; Conf. Ruxandra Ionescu is the actual vice-president; Dr. Gabriela Udrea is its National Secretary; Dr. Florian Berghea is its Bucharest branch Secretary "Carol Davila University of Medicine - Research centre on the pathology and treatment of the systemic rheumatic diseases"-RCRD brings together the members of the two Rheumatology chairs from Carol Davila University. Each chair represents a sub-group in our centre with major interest in a certain domain. There are three principal domains our members are involved in: Group 1 Bone structure, collagen and elastic tissues in Rheumatic diseases (including osteoporosis, inflammatory osteoporosis, hormone replacement in osteoporosis, systemic sclerosis, study of aging effect and related genomics )- Group 2 Normal and pathological inflammation in Rheumatic diseases (including dendritic cells involvement, TNF and anti-TNF therapy, gene polymorphism) - Group 3 Public health topics (research in epidemiology, health economics and social medicine with respect for Rheumatic disease with particular focus on marginal populations: low-income, disabled, aged).
