Our research delivers the greatest impact in the shortest time possible. And our strategic approach focuses on the areas where research is needed most.
Addressing the challenges posed by lupus clinical trials requires a detailed, comprehensive approach. We work with leaders in the field to create solutions for each challenge so new therapy options can become available.
Our research is improving the day-to-day lives of people with lupus now, easing their suffering while providing hope as we work toward earlier diagnosis, improved care, and better treatments.
We support lupus researchers at every stage of their careers to ensure there is a well-trained and dedicated talent pool to conduct investigators into the causes, treatments and cures for lupus.
In children, lupus tends to be more aggressive and severe than it is in adults. In response to these challenges, we established the first and only national childhood lupus research program.
Stem cell therapy is one of the most promising frontiers in lupus research today. It is especially critical for people whose lupus doesn’t respond to other treatments.
We work hand in hand with diverse partners to advance lupus research, including the U.S. government, academia, industry, nonprofit groups, people with lupus and their families, and experts from around the world.
We fund innovative scientific initiatives and research studies to identify the causes of lupus, discover better ways to control symptoms and, ultimately, find pathways to cure lupus.
