Medical Research Fellowship Program
Today, there is a shortage of clinicians with in-depth expertise on psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. The National Psoriasis Foundation Medical Research Fellowship program seeks to increase the number of scientists focused on studying and treating psoriatic diseases by encouraging young scientists to become physician researchers and dedicate their careers to psoriatic diseases.
Recruited from top medical schools as residents, each fellow receives a one-year grant of up to $40,000 to conduct research on questions related to the cause and cure of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. The schools provide lab space, equipment and supplies needed to carry out their investigative work while the funds from the fellowship help pay their salaries.
The National Psoriasis Foundation Research Fellowships are made possible by a grant from Amgen.
