ALR Advocacy Leads to Continued DoD Funding for Lupus Research

In 2004, the Alliance for Lupus Research achieved an important public policy milestone when the Department of Defense (DoD) agreed to include lupus in the list of diseases funded through their Peer Reviewed Medical Research Program. For the first time, lupus would be included, with 23 other topic areas, in this $50 million program. Through the ALR’s continued efforts, the DoD has awarded over $6 million to lupus researchers since. And it’s all thanks to donors and advocates like you who continue to support the efforts of the Alliance for Lupus Research. Thank you!
