S.L.E. Lupus Foundation announces new grants to further NYC scientists' leadership in lupus research
Date:4/5/2011

ritical "affector" mechanisms lead to the production of damaging auto-antibodies in lupus.

"As a fellow, you are desperate to find support to stay in the lab," describes 2003 Career Development Award recipient Guillermina Girardi, PhD at the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) in Manhattan. "But with the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation's grant you can take the risks and develop new areas of work. It's been really, really important to me."

"The fellowship grant was the very first research grant I ever received," adds Jane Salmon, MD, co-director of the Mary Kirkland Center for Lupus Research at HHS and a 1981 Basic Science Fellowship winner. "It motivated me and made me believe that people had confidence in me as a scientist. It changed my life and it enabled me to begin an independent career, which I've been pursuing now for over 30 years."

And since 2000, as a founding member of the national Lupus Research Institute, the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation has extended its research support to over 100 distinguished scientists across the country pursuing novel approaches to understanding and treating lupusincluding 20 based in New York City.

New York-area academic medical centers with scientists who have received funds from the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation and the Lupus Research Institute include:

  • Hospital for Special Surgery: $4.4 million via 52 grants
  • Albert Einstein College of Medicine: $3.2 million via 39 grants
  • Columbia University Medical Center: $2.6 million via 18 grants
  • NYU/Hospital for Joint Diseases: $2 million via 32 grants
  • North Shore/LIJ-Feinstein Institute: $1.2 million via 16 grants

"Due to our early and ongoing investment, New York City now has the most lupus labs, the most lupus researchers, and the most lupus treatment centers than any other place in the country," said the Foundation's Executive Director Margaret Dowd. "By fostering new scientific talent and building research labs,
