Lupus Insight Prize


Lupus Insight Prize


Prize Objectives

The primary objective of the Lupus Insight Prize is to identify and recognize an outstanding investigator with a documented record of creativity and innovation who has made a novel research discovery in scientific domains relevant to lupus. The Prize is not a lifetime achievement award. Rather, the Lupus Insight Prize is given for a specific, significant, and recent (within the past five years) discovery relevant to lupus.

In addition to recognizing a specific insight or discovery, the Prize also aims to direct the talents of the Prize recipient toward further high impact research achievement and testing of the insight in lupus. This should shift the current paradigms and significantly advance the understanding or treatment of lupus. Secondary objectives of the Prize are to: (1) raise the visibility of lupus as a significant medical condition among the general public and (2) demonstrate the determination of the LRA to surmount the challenges of this complex and debilitating disease through the support of research.

The 2024 nomination deadline for this program has passed.
