Lupus Insight Prize


Lupus Insight Prize


Prize Objectives

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. Please note that nominations for discoveries dating back to more than five years ago (prior to 2016) will not be considered.

In addition to recognizing a specific insight and/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.
