Testing a new way to monitor lupus nephritis (kidney inflammation) without intrusive and sometimes damaging biopsies via noninvasive MRI scans.
Pinpointing novel genes specifically associated with lupus in people of African-American ancestry-a population more commonly affected by lupus, and also far more likely to experience severe disease.
Taking the unconventional approach that nervous system networks modulate inflammation and can be targeted to limit damage to organs in lupus.

If they really put more research into these areas, we might make some significant progress.

I am loving this bot...This is so great!

Peace and Blessings
