Why Support Us
Help millions of patients
Millions of Americans suffer from autoimmune diseases, inflammatory diseases, and other immune-related illnesses such as cancer. We do not know many of their causes, and despite the development of promising new medications, we still don't have cures. Your donation to us willfund critical research that may lead to new medications, and even cures, for many of these serious and sometimes fatal diseases.
Advance the boundaries of medical knowledge
Your gift can help us research space and build our endowment. This will expand research initiatives, lead to new biomedical knowledge, and increase the likelihood of helping millions worldwide fight diseases related to inflammation and immune-related disorders. Your generosity will also accelerate the creation of technologies that biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies can license to produce new treatments and cures.
