  • The Autoimmune Association organizes and funds two Noel R. Rose Scientific Colloquiums per year, leading to many break-throughs in autoimmune research. Rose’s pioneering research was instrumental in establishing the concept of autoimmune disease. It helped immunologists understand that the immune system is capable of directing a response against healthy tissues and organs.
