Lupus Research Institute
The Lupus Research Institute (LRI) founded by families and shaped by scientists, is the country’s only nonprofit organization singularly devoted to novel research in lupus. Established in 2000, LRI now has the largest number and widest range of lupus research projects nationwide—LRI scientists are at 55 academic medical centers across 22 states. The LRI National Coalition network of patient groups serves people living in the major cities and states across the country who think they may have lupus, have been diagnosed with lupus, or have friends or family members with lupus.
