After much discussion and evaluation, the Alliance for Lupus Research’s peer reviewers, Scientific Advisory Board, and Board of Directors have named 11 Pilot grantees for the 2007 Target Identification in Lupus (TIL) program, and renewed the grants of two others. They also awarded 10 additional grants under ALR’s new Pilot Grant initiative, for a total of nearly $8 million in funding.

“We are very excited about the potential of our largest class of grantees yet,” said ALR resident Barbara Boyts. “Our new investigators hail from dozens of the most prestigious research institutions around the world.”

As the largest private funder of lupus research in the world, the ALR has committed over $42 million to research since its founding in 1999.
