NPF Accepting Summer Student Research Grant Applications


The National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) is accepting Summer Student Research Grant applications from undergraduate and medical students conducting research over the summer on psoriatic diseases or related comorbidities.

The Summer Student Research Grant program is designed to foster the development of young scientists who intend to become bench researchers or clinician scientists focused on improving the lives of patients living with psoriatic disease. Applicants are encouraged to review recent publications to identify gaps and priorities in research on psoriatic disease and can submit applications on any aspect of this condition, including basic science, translational research, technology, epidemiology, health services, and clinical research.

As many as 4 Summer Student Research grants may be awarded this year, with successful applicants receiving up to $4000 to support salary/stipend and up to $1000 to support project related expenses. Projects submitted for review must be 10 weeks and take place between May 1, 2017 and September 30, 2018.
