You can make a difference in psoriatic disease research by joining our ongoing research studies.

 

We are looking for healthy volunteers and people with dermatologist diagnosed psoriasis (without arthritis) to serve as "controls" in our research studies. 

Healthy Volunteers

Healthy volunteers must be over 18 years of age, with no personal or family history of psoriasis, inflammatory arthritis, or autoimmune disease. Volunteers will be asked to fill out some questionnaires pertaining to demographics and family history, and donate blood for genetic and laboratory testing.

Psoriasis Patients

People with psoriasis must be over 18 years of age and have a dermatologist's diagnosis of psoriasis. Volunteers will be asked to fill out some questionnaires pertaining to demographics and family history, and donate blood for genetic and laboratory testing. You will also be assessed by a rheumatologist for the presence of psoriatic arthritis and you will be asked to return to the clinic annually to be monitored for the presence of psoriatic arthritis.

If you are interested in participating in our research studies as a healthy volunteer or psoriasis patient, please contact Sutha Shanmugarajah at 416-603-5800 x2951.
