To drive efforts to cure psoriatic disease and improve the lives of those affected.
Founded in 1966 from a tiny classified ad in a Portland, Oregon, newspaper, NPF has evolved to become the leading patient advocacy group for the more than 8 million Americans living with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. As a part of that effort, NPF created its Patient Navigation Center to offer personalized assistance to everyone with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis.
As emerging research continues to demonstrate the serious, systemic effects of these chronic autoimmune diseases, the highest priority is to find a cure.
Five-Year Strategic Plan
1. Lead collaborative, transformational research in psoriatic disease
2. Increase the lifespan and health of individuals living with psoriatic disease
3. Secure the human, technological, and financial resources necessary to achieve the NPF’s mission-related goals
To date, NPF has funded more than $21 million in research grants and fellowships that help drive discoveries that may lead to more and better treatments and ultimately cure. In 2020, NPF awarded $3.28 million in research grants and fellowships. A total of 39 projects focused on psoriatic disease and related comorbidities is planned. All projects align with the NPF mission of driving efforts toward a cure for psoriatic disease and improving the lives of those affected.
