FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Catie Coman National Psoriasis Foundation 800.723.9166 x367 971.570.5884 (cell) [email protected] National Psoriasis Foundation awards $50,000 research grant Case Western University doctor will study link to psoriasis and cardiovascular disease PORTLAND, Ore. (May 3, 2010)—The National Psoriasis Foundation awarded Nicole Ward, Ph.D., of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, a one-year, $50,000 Discovery Research Grant to study psoriasis—a non-contag ious, chronic disease of the immune system that appears on the skin, affecting as many as 7.5 million Americans. Dr. Ward, assistant professor in the department of dermatology, will determine the connection between psoriasis and cardiovascular comorbidities such as atherosclerosis, a diseas\ e of the arteries, and heart disease. Ward’s goal is to identify the cellular and molecular links to psoriasis and these associated diseases in order to provide new insight into therapeutic treatments. “We are proud and honored to support Dr. Ward’s project,” said Chip Newton, member of the National Psoriasis Foundation Scientific Advi sory Committee. “Her research endeavor is imperative to finding new treatments and, ultimately, a cure for psoriasis, which is the Foundation’s highest priority.” Dr. Ward’s Discovery Grant was one of eight aw arded to top scientists to provide support for pilot research that focuses on the Psoriasis Founda tion’s four research pathways of genetics, cell biology, immunology and epidemiological/health sciences. Since 1975, the Psoriasis Foundation has awarded more than $6 million in grants to su\ pport promising psoriasis research and is the largest ch aritable funder of psoriatic disease research worldwide.
