The S.L.E. Lupus Foundation is a dedicated leader in the fight to eradicate lupus. For more than 30 years, we have funded pioneering research aimed at revealing the causes of lupus and discovering effective, well-tolerated therapies.

The Foundation partners with the Lupus Research Institute (LRI) to fund new science into both the causes of lupus, and into the best therapies to treat lupus patients. The Foundation is taking prudent risks in pursuing innovation. We strongly believe that funding original and novel research increases the likelihood of achieving our goal more quickly.
