Psoriasis Australia Funded Research

Psoriasis Australia is a leader in promoting psoriasis and psoriasis research by teaming up with scientists, medical professionals, industry and the government. One of our missions is to drive efforts to cure psoriasis and improve the lives of those affected. For this reason Psoriasis Australia takes a leadership role in funding and promoting psoriasis research, with the goal of finding better treatments and a cure for psoriasis.

Psoriasis Australia is now in a position to be able to offer financial grants to fund innovative research projects. Research projects are selected not only for their potential to yield information that may help treat psoriasis, but also for their potential to answer basic questions about the mechanisms of the condition.

If you share Psoriasis Australia’s goal of finding better treatments and a cure for psoriasis, consider applying for a Psoriasis Australia research grant.
