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

PORTLAND, Ore. (July 1, 2013)Twelve residents and medical students each received a one-year, $40,000 National Psoriasis Foundation fellowship to study psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. The National Psoriasis Foundation Amgen Medical Dermatology Fellowships aim to increase the number of scientists studying and treating psoriatic diseases by encouraging promising doctors to dedicate their careers to psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis as physician researchers.

The fellowships connect an early-career doctor with an established psoriatic disease researcher who will oversee their work. Learn more about the Psoriasis Foundation fellowship program: http://www.psoriasis.org/fellowships. The 2013 fellows are:

  • Shehla Admani, M.D., of Rady Children's Hospital at University of California, San Diego, who will use previous data suggesting an increased prevalence of liver disease in adults with psoriasis to study a possible association of liver disease in children with psoriasis.
  • Sarah Churton, M.D., of University Hospitals Case Medical Center, who will use existing data to determine how diet and exercise influence psoriasis severity and a person's cardiovascular risk associated with psoriasis.
  • Jeffrey Cohen, B.A., of Brigham and Women's Hospital at Harvard Medical School, who will examine the risk of psoriatic diseases in people with obstructive sleep apnea.
  • Nazanin Ehsani, M.D., of Stanford University, who will use genetically modified mice to explain how the immune system and the skin interact in mice with psoriasis-like skin.
  • Jessica Garelik, D.O., of New York University School of Medicine, who will study the relationship between microbes found on the skin and psoriasis, and the effects of gluten-heavy diets on psoriasis. Dr. Garelik's project may also provide insight into the association between psoriasis and inflammatory bowel disease.
