Funding promising new studies through the Discovery Grant program

Eight scientists studying psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis each received a one-year, $50,000 Discovery Grant from the National Psoriasis Foundation for early-stage research that aims to advance treatments for these diseases. The grants are also intended to help initiate research for additional long-term funding from the National Institutes of Health and other agencies.


Advancing the treatment of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis with Translational Research Grants

Six scientists on the forefront of psoriatic disease research each received a two-year, $200,000 Translational Research Grant from the National Psoriasis Foundation. The grants, totaling $1.2 million, support projects that move laboratory or clinical discoveries into work that benefits patients.


Providing fellowships to increase the number of scientists doing psoriatic disease research

Twelve early-career doctors each received a one-year, $40,000 medical research fellowship from the National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) to study psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. The research fellowships are designed to increase the number of physician researchers investigating psoriatic diseases—leading to more discoveries, better treatments and, ultimately, a cure.
