Peer-Reviewed Grant Program

The Foundation’s Medical-Scientific Advisory Council annually establishes research priorities and develops specific opportunities that investigators can pursue to apply for research grant funding. The Foundation annually issues a Request for Applications (RFAs) and seeks proposals from lupus tenure-track investigators. These grant proposals are evaluated through a rigorous peer-review process using guidelines established by the National Institutes of Health.
