Congratulations to Dr. Shaun Jackson, principal investigator in Seattle Children’s Research Institute’s Center for Immunity and Immunotherapies, for his $3 million, three-year Global Team Science Award (GTSA) from the Lupus Research Alliance (LRA).

Lupus is a chronic, complex autoimmune disease that affects millions of people worldwide. In lupus patients, the immune system, which is designed to protect against infection, creates antibodies that can target any part of the body. Symptoms vary widely, from rashes and debilitating fatigue to life-threatening organ failure.
