Delivering Hope to Patients

The LRI stands for hope and the possibility of a future of a life without lupus. Our scientists are now doing groundbreaking research—especially in the biology of human lupus—and leveraging millions of dollars at the NIH. Because of this extraordinary progress, I am very hopeful for lupus patients like me, my young niece, and the many others who struggle daily with this disease.

As its next decade begins, the LRI remains steadfast in its determination to:

  • take risks
  • think outside the box
  • bring only the best new ideas and imaginative, creative new science to lupus.
