The Lupus Research Institute (LRI), the world’s leading private supporter of innovative research in lupus, pioneers discovery and champions scientific creativity in the hunt for solutions to this complex and dangerous autoimmune disease.

Lupus Research Institute National Coalition
Through its membership and support of the Lupus Research Institute National Coalition of state and local lupus organizations, the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation helps to serve as the nation-wide “Patients’ Voice for Lupus Research” united to prevent, treat and cure lupus by advocating for lupus on Capitol Hill. The National Coalition also mobilizes lupus research, champions clinical trials, and works to eliminate racial disparities in lupus.
Finding a safe and effective medicine for lupus is our best hope for stopping the destruction of this disease. Sponsored by S.L.E. Lupus Foundation and other supportive organizations nationwide of the Lupus Research Institute’s National Coalition, LupusTrials.org aims to get as many people enrolled in clinical trials for lupus as possible—so that the lupus community can finally get some answers on prevention, treatments, and a cure.
