The LITE study is the result of a long standing collaboration between Dr. Joel Gelfand, from the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Kristina Callis Duffin, from the University of Utah (Co-PI), and the National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF). The study is funded by the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), an independent research institute authorized by Congress in 2010.  PCORI funds studies that aim to help patients and those who care for them make better-informed healthcare choices.


The LITE Study is guided by committee representatives of dermatology experts, patients with psoriasis, and leaders in health care insurance.
