The Alliance for Lupus Research (ALR) is proud to announce the launch of the Lupus Insight Prize a first of-a-kind initiative to encourage innovation and scientific advances in lupus research presented in a collaboration among the Lupus Research Institute and the Lupus Foundation of America.  The Lupus Insight Prize will be awarded annually by the three organizations to recognize and honor an outstanding investigator each year with a documented record of creativity, innovation, and productivity in lupus research, and with a high likelihood of generating further advances in the diagnosis and treatment of lupus.

The Lupus Insight Prize recipient will be awarded $200,000 to be used for research dedicated to advancing understanding of the genetic, environmental, molecular, immunologic or cellular aspects of lupus and/or its treatment. The Prize must be utilized within three years from the date awarded. 

Nominations will be reviewed by members of an independent Selection Committee comprised of representatives of the three funding lupus organizations. The Committee will review nominations and award the Prize based on a variety of criteria, including academic achievements, creativity, insight, and potential for future advances that will impact people with lupus.
