Pivotal Findings On Autoimmune Disease Shared At Lupus Research Institute "Forum For Discovery"
Also featured at the Forum were presentations by Drs.
Ann Marshak-Rothstein at
University of Massachusetts Medical School and
Greg Barton at
University of California, Berkeley, the two outstanding recipients of LRI's new Distinguished Innovators Award. The first
$1 million privately funded international award for academic lupus research, the Distinguished Innovators initiative was created to find the basic causes of lupus that can drive towards a cure.
Lupus is a chronic, complex and prevalent autoimmune disease that affects more than 1.5-million Americans. More than 90% of lupus sufferers are women, mostly young women between the ages of 15 to 44. Women of color are especially at risk. In lupus, the immune system, which is designed to protect against infection, creates antibodies that attack the body's own tissues and organs -- the kidneys, brain, heart, lungs, blood, skin, and joints.
