The PsA Diagnosis Project

The psoriatic arthritis treatments we have today were barely a dream a generation ago. But curing PsA remains a dream. One big reason: the lack of a diagnostic test.

NPF launched the PsA Diagnosis Project to fill that gap. A diagnostic test will dramatically reduce the guesswork and the long delays in reaching a diagnosis and beginning treatment – delays that can cause years of pain and irreparable joint damage.

With the help of our global research community, we intend to make that diagnostic test a reality. That’s why we’re awarding our first PsA Diagnostic Test Grants. The winners of these first grants and their pioneering proposals will be publicized here in fall 2019.

Support the project

NPF has set an ambitious goal to raise $10 million over the next five years to fund the PsA Diagnosis Project. As of May 2019, we have raised $1,208,500. But we still need your help. Make a gift to the PsA Diagnosis Project and help fund the talented researchers who will help us to achieve this important milestone.  

All donations made through June 30, 2019 will be matched by a generous gift from the Wood family.
