LRI doesn’t dictate a path of research to follow.
Instead, it stays open to innovation and the best new ideas, and lets the science lead the way....
“Discovery has to be imagined, not managed.”

LRI scientists are asking: what makes lupus happen, and what can prevent or stop it?
Are the genes we inherit from our parents involved somehow?
Or are problems in general immune system function to blame?
Why, for example, does the lupus immune system react to the body’s own DNA?
Could it be that environmental triggers jumpstart or exacerbate lupus?
Why does gender—male or female—appears to matter in the risk and severity of lupus. Why?
What about the potential of biomarkers—early predictors—to take the guesswork out of diagnosing and treating lupus?
Are new treatments around the corner?
On the go?
