The Lupus Foundation of America (Foundation) is the national force devoted to solving the mystery of lupus, one of the world’s cruelest, most unpredictable and devastating diseases, while giving caring support to those who suffer from its brutal impact. Through a comprehensive program of research, education, support and advocacy, the Foundation leads the fight to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus.
Lupus Foundation of America funded research has contributed to every lupus research breakthrough over the past 40+ years. The Foundation drives research to deliver the most significant impact on peoples’ lives in the shortest time possible and leads sustained advocacy efforts to secure hundreds of millions of dollars in government funding for additional lupus research, including studies at top medical institutions across our nation. Through work to overcome regulatory hurdles and incorporate patient perspectives in the drug development and approval process, the Foundation is helping to put more and better treatments into the hands of people with lupus.
The Foundation delivers education programs and provides vital services through its national network of local chapters, regional offices, the National Resource Center on Lupus, and its health educator team to help guide people through the complexities of living and coping with lupus.
