The National Psoriasis Foundation has long recognized the importance of research to improve the lives of those living with psoriatic disease.
To that end, NPF has issued an RFP for Early Career Research Grants. Through the program, grants of up to $50,000 (direct costs only) will be awarded to graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and researchers at similar trainee-level positions interested in conducting projects related to psoriatic disease. Up to eight new grants will be awarded through the program in 2020.
Applications related to all aspects of psoriatic disease are strongly encouraged, including basic science, translational research, technology, epidemiology, health services, and clinical research. Prospective applicants are encouraged to review recent publications and reports identifying research gaps and priorities in psoriatic disease research.
Eligible applicants include graduate students who are dedicating at least 50 percent of their time to research, postdoctoral researchers, fellows, graduate students, and other trainee-level positions. The applicant need not be a citizen of the United States, and the research need not take place in the U.S.
