TULSA, Oklahoma -

The Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation received a nearly $500,000 grant.

The money comes from The National Institute of Health and will be used to understand Lupus.

Lupus is a disease in which the immune system attacks the body's own tissues and can cause damage to the joints, skin and major organs.

The grant's goal is to create a drug that targets and prevents lupus before it develops.
