NPF is the largest nonproﬁt funder of psoriatic disease research in the world, with an investment strategy focused on treatment development and other approaches to improve health outcomes for everyone with psoriatic disease. NPF has invested over $20 million in grants and fellowships for psoriatic disease research in recent years.
NPF funds both early-stage research projects that demonstrate the potential to significantly increase our understanding of psoriatic diseases, as well as clinical and patient-centered research to improve patient outcomes. In addition to supporting research through our Grants and Fellowships program, NPF conducts research through partnerships with other institutions such as in the LITE study and is preparing for the first Foundation-led clinical study, an evaluation of the effect of educational intervention on treatment outcomes. NPF also works with legislators and policymakers to increase federal funding for psoriatic disease research.
