Career Development for Researchers

We help develop the next generation of lupus thought leaders by funding scientists at every stage of their careers. Through our grants, awards, and fellowships, we recognize their achievements and encourage them to focus on the areas of greatest potential.

The need for additional qualified, committed lupus clinicians and scientists is real and isn't going away.

A vibrant pool of knowledgeable and well-trained scientists and clinical investigators is important to the future of lupus research. The Lupus Foundation of America supports lupus investigators at all stages of their careers. Our funding has helped talented individuals begin and continue their work in this field.
