Lupus Research

There are many laboratories around the world working on lupus
By working together the lupus genetics community has increased the understanding of the genetic causes of lupus greatly.
We know there are many genes (at least 80, and possibly many more) involved in the disease process, and we have an
understanding of the biology behind many of these genes.

  • Short courses on research in the genetics of lupus

    There are three short courses below to help you learn about the progress being made in the genetics of Lupus. These courses
    are free to take and each one should only take approximately half an hour. There is a short informal test at the end of
    each course with the aim of consolidating the information you will have digested.



    You can take any of these courses at any time and in any order you like. Please click on the picture of the course you would like
    to take
