Now accepting proposals for NPF Research Grants
The National Psoriasis Foundation Research Program funds and promotes psoriatic disease research, with the goal of finding better treatments and a cure for psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. Grants are awarded to early career and established scientists, and fellowships are awarded to residents interested in studying and treating psoriatic disease. Requests for Proposals for the 2015-16 NPF Research Program grants are now available.
Discovery Grants allow psoriatic disease researchers to undertake preliminary and "proof-of-concept" studies. The Discovery Grant program’s goal is to help investigators develop competitive grant proposals that will lead to long-term funding from the National Institutes of Health or other funding agencies. Applicants may request up to $75,000 for one year.
Translational Research Grants focus on the rapid translation of scientific discoveries from clinical, laboratory or population-based studies into treatments that have a clear benefit for patients with psoriatic disease. Applicants may request up to $100,000 per year for two years.
NEW THIS YEAR: Early Career Research Grants will fund graduate students and postdoctoral researchers pursuing psoriatic disease research projects. Applicants may request up to $50,000 for one year.
If you have any questions regarding this year’s grant cycle, please send an email to email@example.com . Deadline for submissions is Oct. 2, 2015.
