The third Lupus Insight Prize will be announced at the upcoming professional Federation of Clinical Immunology Societies (FOCis) meeting in San Diego June 24-27.
The Lupus Insight Prize, a novel collaborative initiative created to encourage innovation and scientific advances in lupus research, is presented in a collegial effort among the Lupus Research Institute along with the Alliance for Lupus Research and the Lupus Foundation of America. The Lupus Insight Prize, a highly successful collaboration among the three organizations, recognizes a major, novel insight and/or discovery that have the promise of changing thinking about lupus as well as a high likelihood of generating further advances in the diagnosis and treatment of the disease.
The Lupus Insight Prize recipient will be awarded $200,000 to be used for research dedicated to furthering understanding of the genetic, environmental, molecular, immunologic or cellular aspects of lupus or its treatment.
