ALR Funding Nearly $7 Million in Target Identification in Lupus Grants

The Alliance for Lupus Research (ALR) is delighted to announce that we will be awarding $6.7 million in new grants this year as part of our Target Identification in Lupus (TIL) grant program. The aim of all lupus research funded under the TIL program is to quickly move a therapy from the laboratory to people with lupus.

These grants bring the total committed to innovative lupus research by the ALR since 2000 to nearly $90 million! 

As the world’s largest private funder of lupus research, we are excited and hopeful about the advances being made through our funded grants. We know that this wouldn’t be possible without the support of people like you who share in our mission to put an end to this disease.

Together, we’re leading the way to a cure.

Support from Some Familiar Faces

A proactive initiative between the Alliance for Lupus Research and Lupus Research Institute called LRxL STAT is focusing on identifying new treatments from among those approved for other conditions. This week, a prestigious expert committee is reviewing results and prioritizing the best candidates for clinical trials in lupus. We are hopeful about the prospect of more quickly developing safer therapies for those with lupus.

Read a message from our Walker of the Week – Vanessa Payne, Baltimore:In May of 2009 I started feeling really tired, sick, just not right. Went to lots of doctors and no one ever found anything wrong with me. After a while I just thought I was crazy. People at work thought I just wanted time off work, they looked at me as if I was not sick.Then I went to a skin doctor and as soon as she walked in the room she asked me “DO YOU HAVE LUPUS?” I laughed and said no way! Well she asked if she could do a biopsy on my face where I had a big sore and low and behold it came back positive for Discoid Lupus which led to further testing and I also have SLE lupus! But having found out was just the start of a long road and battle. Let me tell you that rocked my WORLD!! I was scared. I knew nothing about Lupus. I started research and reaching out to people and the first place that reached back was the ALR.Register and join Vanessa and all of our Baltimore walkers: http://bit.ly/M6rtNP
