Grants of up to $50,000 to USA, Canada, and International early stage graduate students and postdoctoral investigators for research projects in the field of psoriatic disease. Funding is intended to enable applicants to eventually compete for larger grants and to position themselves to establish successful long-term careers. Only direct costs are eligible.

The goal of this award is to support scientists at this challenging early-career stage and to welcome them into the collaborative community of scientists, clinicians, and patients involved with NPF research. Ultimately, recipients of this award are expected to be in a position to compete for future funding through NPF Discovery or Translational Research Grants and go on to establish successful long-term careers conducting psoriatic disease research.

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.

Reviewers will be asked to base their evaluations on the following criteria:  

  • Relevance to psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis
  • Ability of investigator(s) to accomplish aims
  • Strategy, methodology, and analyses are well-reasoned and appropriate to accomplish the aims of the project
  • Potential problems, alternative strategies, and benchmarks for success are presented
  • Innovation
  • Likelihood of leading to additional funding
  • Likelihood of impacting patients’ lives
