Research Week 2021

Pioneering Breakthroughs in Lupus Research

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 2021 is July 19-23, which is an opportunity for you to take a look at pioneering breakthroughs in lupus research.

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.

This week you’ll learn more about the wide array of work we have undertaken in the past, the present and what we have in store for the future from researchers and partners who are committed to solving the complex and challenging mysteries of lupus. 

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 a gift from the Lauter Family and Master Spas, all gifts made by July 23 will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, up to a total of $25,000

What we’re doing to advance new treatments 

Developing new treatments for lupus is incredibly complex. There are many challenges researchers face along the way, from how a trial is designed to how to measure improvements.

Here’s a few ways we are addressing these challenges head on:

We owe it to the people of the future to fight for more research funding, to continue to express upon the world, that people with lupus deserve better and safer drugs. We all need to do our part. We're close and we need you!
