Lupus Foundation of America Announces 2008 Research Funding Opportunities

Happy Wednesday everyone.

Hope this finds you well. All is plugging along here in the metro DC area. The only downside right now ... allergy season. Most people I know, myself included, are suffering with some major allergies. I think a lot of it has to do with the budding cherry blossoms. They're beautiful, but man if you have allergies, look out.

And now to lupus news.

The LFA has just released a number of requests for applications for a variety of research opportunities for 2008. I wanted to share those with you.

Until next time, Wick

2008 LFA Research Funding Opportunities

The Lupus Foundation of America, Inc. (LFA) is the foremost national nonprofit organization dedicated to finding the causes of and cure for lupus and providing services to people affected by lupus. Lupus is a complex disorder that continues to cause significant morbidity and mortality. Although basic science and therapeutic advances are being made, substantial work remains to fully understand the epidemiology, etiology, pathogenesis and clinical impact of these disorders. New diagnostic and prognostic tests, as well as directed therapeutic interventions, are still needed.

The LFA is pleased to offer the following grant opportunities for 2008.
