Cast Your Vote and Make a Difference in Lupus Clinical Research!

Your vote is needed to guide the creation of an awareness campaign that will change how America views clinical research! The need for change is clear – two-thirds of clinical trials never reach their goals for patient enrollment – which stalls or stops the process of testing new drugs.

To help address this issue, the Lupus Research Institute is participating with four organizations in the “Rethink Research” Competition for the People’s Choice Award. The objective is to identify the campaign that will best educate and motivate the American public and patients to consider participating in the clinical research necessary to deliver better treatments to the millions of Americans who need them.

Click here to review and cast your vote for one of the six entries to the People’s Choice Award:

Entry A - Clinical research for your future, and hers

Entry B - Going study

Entry C - Heroes aren't hard to come by

Entry D - Missing U

Entry E - Remedi THIS

Entry F - Side effects may include

In addition to your votes, these entries will be reviewed by a panel of judges from participating organizations:

  • Adam Chasse, RxTrials
  • Norman M. Goldfarb, MAGI (Model Agreements & Guidelines International)
  • Diane Gross, Lupus Research Institute, S.L.E. Lupus Foundation
  • Joseph Kim, Eli Lilly and Company
  • Jill McNair, CISCRP (Center for Information and Study on Clinical Research)
