Pharmaceutical company Abbott is setting up a €10,000 bursary in rheumatology in honour of Dr. Bernard Connor (1666-1698), the first person to publish a clinical description of ankylosing spondylitis. Born in Kerry, Ireland, Connor studied medicine in France and ended up as the Polish king's personal physician. He died of illness aged 32.
