For the first time, people with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis can contribute directly to the future of research into these chronic, systemic autoimmune diseases through the National Psoriasis Foundation's patient-centered research network called Citizen Pscientist. An online, interactive community, Citizen Pscientist allows people living with psoriatic disease to connect with researchers, share their data and get input from others in the community, and ultimately drive the direction of psoriatic disease research.
