We continue to build upon our foundation of innovative research toward finding better treatments because we know lupus is personal to you - and it’s personal to us too.
Research Week 2022 is July 18-22, which is an opportunity for you to take a look at how your support helps the Lupus Foundation of America have a leading role in advancing lupus research to increase knowledge of the disease and improve the quality of life of those living with lupus.
At the heart of it all, the Lupus Foundation of America is focused on developing new therapies, improving patient outcomes, and advancing the quality of care.
During Research Week you’ll learn about:
- the importance of building the next generation of lupus researchers,
- accelerating lupus research discoveries,
- ensuring the voices of people with lupus are at the forefront of research
- how collaboration drives lupus research forward.
Since 1977 the Lupus Foundation of America has supported every major lupus research breakthrough. These accomplishments would not have been possible without the generous support of people like you!
Thanks to the Lupus Foundation of America Board of Directors, all gifts made by July 22, 2022 will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, up to a total of $25,000!
