New Research Grants Awarded

This year we've awarded two PhD Studentships and the Cecil King Memorial Award.

The Psoriasis Association has a long history of funding and supporting research into the causes, nature and care of psoriasis. We are delighted to be continuing this legacy by funding two new PhD Studentships and granting the Cecil King Memorial Award. These grants cover a range of important topics, from improving the diagnosis of psoriasis in children to developing a social media tool to reduce misconceptions about psoriasis.
