WASHINGTON, July 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Lupus Foundation of America, Inc. (LFA) is accepting letters of intent until July 13 for grants to advance adult stem cell transplantation research in humans as a treatment for lupus, and to better understand pediatric lupus features and societal factors that affect the health-related quality of life of children, adolescents and young adults with systemic lupus.

The LFA will award one $100,000 grant for adult stem cell research. Both basic and clinical research applications will be accepted.

Both grants have the potential for second year funding. Full applications are due August 7 and the grants are to be awarded by September 18.
