Lupus Research Institute announces 2009 novel research grants
Date:11/24/2009

opher A.J. Roman, PhD, at the State University of New York Downstate Medical Center (Brooklyn). "Many are very risky grants. They may be built solely upon an idea, as opposed to considerable experimental evidencewhich is normally needed for an NIH proposal. The scientists on the LRI Board have the vision, the foresight and experience to pick those research projects that will hopefully lead to a better understanding of the disease. And then from that, better treatments."

The 2009 LRI grant recipients are:

  • Steven Bensinger, VMD, PhD
    University of California, Los Angeles
    Linking lupus, cardiovascular disease and lipid metabolism

  • Hongbo Chi, PhD
    St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Memphis, TN
