PORTLAND, Ore., May 15, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Twenty-six scientists have received a total of $2.06 million in grants from the National Psoriasis Foundation to study psoriasis—the most common autoimmune disease in the country, affecting as many as 7.5 million Americans—and psoriatic arthritis, an inflammatory joint and tendon disease.
"National Psoriasis Foundation is committed to funding promising research," said Chip Newton of the National Psoriasis Foundation's Scientific Advisory Committee. "This year, due to a record number of applicants, we awarded the highest number of grants and dollars in our organization's history. Each of these projects has tremendous potential to advance our knowledge of psoriatic diseases, lead to new treatments and, we hope, even a cure for these diseases."
