Recent scientific advances are giving us an unprecedented opportunity to fight autoimmune diseases. While all of the efforts to advance our understanding of autoimmune diseases are rapidly proceeding at Johns Hopkins, we have more leads than we have resources to pursue them. You can help to continue these efforts by making a tax-deductible donation to the Autoimmune Disease Research Center. The Center can elevate the fight against autoimmune diseases to a new level, acting as a catalyst to spark the expertise of faculty in many disciplines, encouraging the addition of new faculty and activities, and leading the way in the pursuit of innovative ideas.
If you have questions about how to support research on autoimmune diseases at Johns Hopkins, contact the development office at 443-287-7947 or FJHMDeptPrograms@jhmi.edu.

Endowments are funds or properties donated to an institution as a source of income. Endowments can finance important program needs, such as the creation of a postdoctoral fellowship in autoimmunity.
Young physicians and scientists must make critical decisions when they come to the end of their standard training. They must decide whether or not to pursue an academic career in research. Those who choose a career in research must then choose a sub-specialty area on which to focus their research efforts. Countless physicians and scientists with enormous potential have chosen not pursue an academic research career because of a lack of a secure income. At the same time, young minds are the most creative minds. We want and need to make autoimmunity research an attractive career choice.
We propose to create a fellowship training program in autoimmune diseases at Johns Hopkins. This program will provide secured funding to young scientists and physicians wishing to pursue a career in autoimmunity research. The research fellowship program will take advantage of and most importantly encourage the creativity of the trainees. The fellows will not be mere technicians following detailed instructions from a mentor. Instead, the fellows will be given extensive free time and will focus on creating novel technologies and on identifying new technologies, developed in other fields, which can be applied to autoimmunity research.
The budget for a research fellow and supplies is $70,000 per year (most fellowships last 2 or 3 years). For more information about creating an endowment or supporting the fellowship program, contact Noel R. Rose.
