Ninth International Congress on Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, Vancouver 2010 ("Lupus 2010")

Informative . . . Empowering . . . Promising.

In June 2010, the 9th International Congress on Systemic Lupus Erythematosus was held in Vancouver, British Columbia. Hundreds of world leading researchers and healthcare professionals, and individuals living with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) attended and learned about the current state of the science in SLE and future opportunities in lupus research, education and care.

The objectives of the Lupus 2010 were to:
  • Review the state of the science and the "state of the art" in SLE treatment and management.
  • Identify future opportunities in research.
  • Train and encourage young scientists to be the next generation of leaders in SLE research through mentorship by the current leaders.
  • Narrow the gap between what we know, what we do, and what we could do for those living with lupus to ensure that as advances are made in treatment and management they are communicated world-wide.
  • Empower patients through education.
The presentations given during Lupus 2010 are available to be viewed online. Please visit to watch them.
