Sponsor a Lupus Project
For more than 30 years, the Lupus Foundation of America (LFA) and its network of chapters have been committed to accelerating the pace of medical discovery in lupus with the clear goal of making clinical research more feasible. Through generous donations, the LFA's own national research program, Bringing Down the Barriers -- which is dedicated to removing obstacles that have obstructed basic biomedical, clinical, epidemiological, behavioral, and translational research for decades -- has grown exponentially, more than 200% in the past two years alone.
Under the guidance of its multidisciplinary Medical-Scientific Advisory Council, the LFA has funded projects that have the potential to accelerate clinical trials, enhance the development of safe, effective, and non-toxic treatment, and expedite the discovery of a cure.
The LFA and its affiliated chapters have provided nearly $23 million to award more than 400 grants to investigators at approximately 100 leading academic and medical institutions throughout the nation, and to conduct special research initiatives to advance the science and medicine of lupus.
The LFA’s highly regarded program, which includes a strenuous peer–review, is focused on answering the tough questions and leading the way in such areas as pediatric and male lupus, translational and adult stem cell transplantation, cardiovascular disease, novel pilot approaches and the identification and validation of lupus biomarkers.
Because of your generous contributions, LFA continues to lead the fight for a cure.
