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.
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.
