S.L.E. Lupus Foundation Leads New York City

 New York City Physicians. New York City Scientists.
New York City Research Labs.

Thanks to your support, we were able to award three new grants to dynamic young lupus investigators in the New York area. Totaling $420K, the additions push our lifetime investment in New York City-area research into lupus past $17 million. This figure includes our support of novel and breakthrough ideas at the national Lupus Research Institute, through which we’ve also backed 22 grants in New York City.

“The S.L.E. Lupus Foundation has been key in making New York City the nation’s leader in lupus research and results that matter for people with this disease.”
- Bruce Cronstein, M.D.

Chairman, S.L.E. Lupus Foundation Medical Advisory Board

We think you might agree—it’s an unparalleled sum for private sector lupus research funding and investigator training in any single metropolitan area.


The newest additions to our Foundation roster of 139 New Investigators are:
  • Josephine Isgro, MD, of the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS)
  • Dipyaman Ganguly, PhD, of Columbia University
  • Yi Yan, PhD, of the Feinstein Institute at North Shore-Long Island Jewish (LIJ) Hospital

“We cannot lose sight of the fact that it is by drawing new research talent into lupus that we will cure lupus.”
