Lupus Research Institute strategy delivers $30 million in national funding
Date:11/19/2007

through discoveries in such diverse fields as genetics, molecular science, cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, cognitive science, biomarkers, and pathways to autoimmune attack. Discoveries include:

  • 20 potential lupus biomarkers early predictors of disease and treatment effectiveness; six are now in clinical investigation and human testing.
  • Genes that increase susceptibility to lupus
  • Pathways that enable misguided antibodies to attack
  • Molecules that determine control of the immune system
  • Targets for new treatments
  • Insights on how lupus damages organs the heart, kidneys, brain, skin

Im grateful to the LRI for being brave enough to fund unusual work at an early stage of development, said Philip Cohen, MD, of the University of Pennsylvania, who received an LRI research grant in 2001 and is continuing his investigations. This initial funding was responsible for getting what is now a very large project off the ground.
