Grants to USA, Canada, and international institutions and for-profits for collaborative research on the prevention of psoriasis and related comorbidities. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended for direct research expenses.

Preventing the onset of disease, relapse or the related comorbidities would overcome many of the obstacles that continue to challenge patients, health care providers and significantly improve the lives of those affected by psoriatic disease.

Highest priority will be given to proposals based on their ability to:

  1. Establish or develop innovative collaborations among basic, translational, and clinical researchers.
  2. Identify a multi-faceted, multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional collaborative team and research approach.
  3. Explain how their approach will have the highest likelihood of developing an intervention that will:
    1. prevent the onset of psoriatic disease, or
    2. prevent the onset of psoriatic disease relapse, or
    3. prevent the onset of related comorbidities
