The primary objective of the Lupus Insight Prize is to identify and recognize an outstanding investigator who has developed a novel research insight in scientific domains relevant to lupus. The Prize is not a lifetime achievement award. Instead, the Lupus Insight Prize will be given for a specific, significant, and recent (within the past five years) discovery that is 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 further testing of the insight in lupus. This should shift the current paradigms and should significantly advance lupus understanding or treatment. 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 Lupus Research Alliance to surmount the challenges of this complex and debilitating disease.
The 2022 submission deadline for this award has passed.
