Lupus Research Institute awards $4.5 million to explore new approaches to lupus

OCTOBER 20, 2006 NEW YORK -- The Lupus Research Institute, a first-tier novel lupus research funding organization, announced today that it has awarded $4.5 million in Novel Research Grants to 15 scientists to pursue new approaches to prevent, treat and cure lupus. The grants provide the scientists with $300,000 over three years to explore their hypotheses, enabling them to expand lupus research in new directions and ultimately advance new lupus treatments. The grant awards were announced at the Institute's annual Forum for Discovery conference, held October 19-20, 2006, at the Yale Club in New York.

With these awards, the Lupus Research Institute's investment in novel lupus research totals almost $20 million, providing funding for 73 studies at 43 academic medical institutions in 22 states since its founding in 2000.

"This is the largest number and widest scope of novel private sector research studies in lupus in the country," said Margaret Dowd, president of the Lupus Research Institute.

"These awards reinforce the Lupus Research Institute's strategy of selecting and funding only novel ideas an approach that continues to attract researchers and scientists from diverse specialties and bring new thinking to lupus research," Dowd said. "Almost half (7) of the studies we are funding this year are classified as "high risk/high reward"--new and untried theories that show great promise for changing lupus research."

A breakdown of the 2006 recipients reveals that:

  • 8 are established investigators new to lupus research
  • 6 are new investigators
  • 9 are pursuing basic science
  • 6 are pursuing clinical research
  • 10 will be conducting studies in animals
  • 5 will be conducting studies in humans

"This year's group of awardees is a great mix of established investigators taking new directions and younger investigators embarking on novel research," said Mar
