Welcome to scientistwithpsoriasis.com!
My name is Josh, and I’ve had psoriasis since I was about 13 years old.
As someone that has had psoriasis for years, I’ve been very interested in doing as much research on it as possible. I’ve noticed is that there aren’t a lot of sites out there about the disease from someone who both has psoriasis and is a scientist. Plenty of places out there are just attempting to get you to buy their product. That’s fine! But tracking down quality information is hard, and it is especially hard if you are worried that you are just being led down the garden path if you will, so you buy some new gunk. I really wanted to dig into the science and talk about the research that has been done, and the research that is currently being done, and then communicate it so folks could understand it, without having a background in science. There are a lot of sites which kind of detail individual experiences, but I’ve often been left wanting more.
So, in the grand tradition of ‘write the book you want to read’ I’ve decided to make a site I’d like to see. I’d like the theme of this site to be about the science of psoriasis and what is known. Two reasons for this:
- I don’t know as much as I would like to about psoriasis and this seems like a good way to learn more.
- I want to be a resource for people who have psoriasis to get some quality information without really pushing a particular agenda.
I guess you could say my ‘mission statement’ is:
Scientistwithpsoriasis.com seeks to provide detailed information in plain english based on scientific research and personal experience in order to educate and entertain both people who suffer from psoriasis and those interested in understanding more about the disease in general.
