National Psoriasis Foundation awards 12 psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis research fellowships
Date:7/2/2013

in Jones, B.A., medical student at the University of Utah School of Medicine, who will investigate how microbes that inhabit the skin and throat might contribute to guttate psosiasis, and develop a tool to better measure its severity.
  • Benjamin Kaffenberger, M.D., of The Ohio State University Medical Center, who will explore the relationship between psoriasis and a naturally occurring human enzyme previously identified as a cause for the abnormal immune function of psoriasis.
  • Noori Kim, M.D., of Tufts Medical Center, who will examine the effectiveness of biologics for psoriasis compared to traditional systemic therapies and phototherapy in a real-world setting.
  • Dario Kivelevitch, M.D., of the Baylor Institute for Immunology Research, who will study the blood and skin of people with palmar-plantar psoriasis to try and understand how it develops. Current treatments are only moderately effective for palmar-plantar psoriasis so this project could identify new treatments for this rare form of psoriasis.
  • Pranathi Lingam, M.D., of Northwestern University, Feinberg School of Medicine, who will collect and analyze data for a registry examining treatment effectiveness. The data will allow Dr. Lingam to investigate the efficacy of different psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis therapies in a real-world setting.
  • Sharon Rose, M.D., of Mount Sinai School of Medicine, who will determine if treating with whipworm parasite, which has suppressed inflammation in other diseases, is safe and effective for moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. Dr. Rose will also study if the sequence in which four common topical treatments for psoriasis are used impacts their effectiveness.
  • Aimee Two, M.D., of the University of California, San Diego, who will examine proteins associated with psoriasis and skin wounds to discover if abnormally high increases in inflammation are seen in psoriasis skin after it's injured.
