Abstract Submission Deadline April 1 for FOCiS Meeting

April 1 is the deadline for late-breaking abstract submissions and for registration by poster presenters at the Federation of Clinical Immunology Societies (FOCiS) Annual Meeting  June 24-27 in San Diego.

At this professional meeting, the recipient of the third Lupus Insight Prize will be awarded during a formal ceremony on June 24.

The Lupus Insight Prize, created to encourage innovation and scientific advances in lupus research, is presented in a collegial effort among the Lupus Foundation of America, the Alliance for Lupus Research and the Lupus Research Institute. The Lupus Insight Prize recognizes a major novel insight and/or discovery that has the promise of changing thinking about lupus and is likely to advance the diagnosis and treatment of the disease.

At the ceremony, the Lupus Insight Prize recipient will be presented with $200,000 to be used for research dedicated to furthering understanding of the genetic, environmental, molecular, immunologic or cellular aspects of lupus or its treatment.

By offering the Lupus Insight Prize in collaboration with our partners, we are able to continue our efforts in supporting the lupus research community and advancing lupus research though our National Research Program. Learn more information about the Lupus Insight Prize.
