National Psoriasis Foundation awards $1.7 million in psoriatic disease research grants and fellowships
National Psoriasis Foundation awarded a total of $1.7 million in research grants and fellowships to 26 scientists studying psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.
Three scientists each received a two-year, $200,000 Translational Grant to "translate" their laboratory findings into improved treatments and methods for managing psoriatic disease.
Ten researchers each received a one-year, $75,000 Discovery Grant for early-stage psoriatic disease research to help advance basic understanding of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.
Additionally, the National Psoriasis Foundation seeks to increase the number of scientists focused on studying and treating psoriatic disease by encouraging young scientists to become physician researchers who dedicate their careers to psoriasis. The Foundation awarded 13 medical dermatology fellowships to promising physician researchers.
