About the Lupus Research Alliance

The Lupus Research Alliance is the world’s leading private funder of lupus research. Established in 2016 – from the merger of the Alliance for Lupus Research, the Lupus Research Institute, and the S.L.E. Foundation – the Lupus Research Alliance was created to improve treatments for lupus while advancing toward a cure. This effort includes raising funds and advocating on behalf of the lupus community in the public policy arena.

We believe that scientific research is the most powerful way we can improve the lives of people living with lupus, today and over the long term. By pushing the limits of scientific exploration and shepherding new discoveries into potential treatments, we aim to seize every opportunity that will help ease the burden of people living with this difficult disease.

MISSION STATEMENT:

The Lupus Research Alliance unites the global lupus community in bold determination to free the world of lupus through the power of science.

We will transform the lives of people affected by lupus as we welcome and embrace a new scientific era, pioneer innovation, push the frontiers of knowledge, enlist diverse new scientific talent, and lead the drive to new treatments, prevention and cure.
