The National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) is offering Bridge Grants to support researchers who have submitted meritorious but unfunded K-type (career development) and R-type applications to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), or similar funding body, with a focus on psoriatic disease or related comorbidities. In line with NPF’s mission, Bridge Grants will provide an important life-line to help support long-term careers of psoriatic disease researchers who will go on to make discoveries that bring us closer to a cure for psoriatic disease and improve patients’ lives.
The principal investigator must be personally and actively responsible for the conduct of the proposed research, and eligible to apply for research grants under the guidelines of the applicant’s host institution. The project proposed must have been submitted as an unfunded application for either a K-type or R-type (or equivalent) award focused on psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, or related comorbidities.
Budget and Project Period
Applicants may request up to $50,000 (direct costs only) for K-type bridge or up to $100,000 for R-type bridge (direct costs only) per year. The total project period for the application submitted is one year.
Applications are closed for the 2022 award cycle. Funding opportunities, RFAs, and application instruction for the 2023 cycle will be released in late Fall.
