In Lupus Europe, we work hard to fulfil our mission. A very important part of that work is to not only be successful in the projects we undertake, but to have high standards and to work collaboratively with #lupus patients, our member organisations and also with lupologists!

This morning we had a medical roundtable meeting, where we had the opportunity to discuss our Strategic Plan for 2023-2028 with a team of incredible lupologists: Professors Arnaud, Houssiau, Limper, Mosca and Schneider gave us incredibly useful feedback today and we had a very productive meeting with them!
