Are you looking for a way to help find a cure for lupus this summer? Even during the summer season, there are many ways you can stay involved with the ALR to help put an end to this disease. It all starts with YOU!

- Plan a summer event with MyFundraising.

- Get started on the fall Walk with Us to Cure Lupus season.

- Walk with Us virtually as part of a nationwide effort to raise funds for lupus research with Walk with U.S., Walk Local Cure Global.

Learn more about how you can continue to spread awareness and help raise critical funds that could be a part of the next big breakthrough in lupus research! http://bit.ly/InvolvedALR

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.

In 2012, the Alliance for Lupus Research held “Walk with Us to Cure Lupus” events across the country.  100% of all donations directly supports lupus research programs.  The ALR is leading the way by collaborating with international researchers.  Enjoy the video and know that we’re leading the way to a cure.

Dr. Paul Utz has always been fascinated by the way proteins trigger a dizzying succession of physical reactions in human cells. So he and fellow researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine began asking some rudimentary questions — Why does one protein hook-up with another? And why are subsequent biological repercussions so significant in disease? Read about how they’re utilizing silicon chips to study proteins as a potentially more effective diagnostic tool.
