Grants of up to $75,000 to USA, Canada, and International researchers at for-profit and nonprofit institutions for research projects on psoriatic disease. Funding is intended for proof-of-concept experiments and preliminary research. Proposed projects should advance the understanding or treatment of psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, or related comorbidities.

As a primary goal of the strategic plan, leading transformational research in psoriatic disease, research projects are chosen not only for their potential to yield information that may help treat psoriatic disease, but also to answer basic questions about the underlying disease mechanisms, comorbidities, and public health. The goal of Discovery Grants is to stimulate the development of new research programs in the field of psoriatic disease capable of competing for long-term funding from the National Institutes of Health or similar agencies in the future.

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.

NPF funds can only be used to cover direct project expenses.
