Francesca Corra, artist in residence at the Arthritis Research UK Centre for Osteoarthritis Pathogenesis, recently unveiled her work ‘Healing hands: the art and science of arthritis’ at the Kennedy Institute.
Supported by the Leverhulme Trust, Francesca has spent the past year working alongside researchers and clinicians at the Centre to explore the disease process of osteoarthritis, its effect on patients and current treatments. From this she has created a body of work that captures arthritic diseases of the hand and the healing hands of the physicians, therapists and surgeons who treat them.
Her pictures will be permanently displayed at the Kennedy Institute together with digital content that will be added to Francesca’s collection later this year.
Directed by Professor Tonia Vincent, the Arthritis Research UK Centre for Osteoarthritis Pathogenesis is hosted by the Kennedy Institute and brings together researchers with an interest in osteoarthritis from across Oxford and the UK.
