The Lupus Foundation of America Supports Student Research

An experienced banking professional, Vince Liuzzi currently serves as an executive vice president and the chief banking officer at DNB First in Philadelphia. Outside of his professional pursuits, Vince Liuzzi supports the work of a number of charities and nonprofits, including the Lupus Foundation of America, an organization that seeks to improve the lives of individuals with lupus through research, education, and advocacy programs and activities.

As part of its ongoing efforts to advance the scientific understanding of lupus, the Lupus Foundation of America operates the Gina M. Finzi Memorial Student Summer Fellowship Program for individuals interested in pursuing careers in biomedical research. The program provides financial support to several students each year and connects them with established principal investigators, who assist them in conducting research projects on lupus.

Established in 1984, the Finzi Memorial Student Summer Fellowship Program has provided grants to nearly 200 promising young students over the last 30 years and has helped inspire a new generation of researchers. A number of program participants have published their work in peer-reviewed journals, and several have gone on to earn advanced degrees and become medical practitioners or academic researchers.
