    The RRDi is looking for volunteer professional or amateur grant writers who would be willing to apply for corporate grants in behalf of the institute. Our volunteers have received three educational grants from Galderma, and if you are willing to learn how to become a grant writer, jump through all the hoops Galderma requires you to jump through, you could received a portion of the grant money as a service to the RRDi since this is allowed in our charter. If you are a professional grant writer who has rosacea please consider spending some volunteer time organizing the RRDi's amateur grant writers committee. We prefer grant writers who have rosacea but if you don't have rosacea we still warmly invite you to write grants for our non profit organization. Anyone who wants to join the RRDi as a corporate member may volunteer to learn how to write grants as a volunteer amateur for the RRDi and become in time a professional grant writer. Please join. After logging into your account, contact us that you want to write grants for the RRDi. We will steer you into the correct direction, but basically you will be a volunteer writing grants for the RRDi and if you receive a grant you will be compensated. You may also receive a letter of recommendation if you volunteer for our non profit writing grants, get compensated, and help our non profit receive grants for rosacea research. 


    Grant Writers Needed

    The RRDi will pay compensation to the grant writer upon successful allocation of money donated to the RRDi. Applying for Education Grants to Galderma has been our focus. You can also apply for grants to other sources.

    Grant writers are enouraged to join the RRDi and use the private members forum in the GRANT WRITERS forum to discuss a team approach and discuss their concerns in the ASK THE MAC forum with our volunteer Medical Advisory Committee members.

    If you are interested please join the RRDi and enter the members forum and look for the public and private grant writers sections. When you join online, please mention in the volunteer skills box that you are a grant writer or would like to write grants for the RRDi.

    If you have any further questions please use our contact form.

J Invest Dermatol. 2020 Sep 14;: Authors: Harden JL, Shih YH, Xu J, Li R, Rajendran D, Hofland H, Chang ALS Abstract Papulopustular rosacea (PPR) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease with limited treatment options. Although multiple pathways have been described to be upregulated in PPR, a mechanistic understanding of the key drivers and interaction between pathways in PPR pathology is lacking. In this study, we utilized PPR biopsy explants to integrate both differentially expressed genes (DEGs) and differently expressed proteins (DEPs) in paired non-lesional (NL) and lesional (LS) PPR tissue (n=5 patients). The results of this study identified 92 DEGs and 20 DEPs between paired PPR LS and NL explants. MAPK and TNF signaling pathways were the most significantly upregulated pathways in PPR LS tissue and aligned with DEPs identified in this study. Both MAPK and TNF signaling pathways highlighted IL-1β as a potential central mediator to PPR pathogenesis. In support of this, stimulation of NL explants with IL-1β resulted in a transcriptomic and proteomic profile similar to LS PPR. In this integrative transcriptomic and quantitative protein analysis, we identified several inflammatory genes, proteins, and pathways which may be contributing to PPR, as well as highlighted a potential role of IL-1β in driving inflammation in PPR.

J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol. 2020 Sep 14;: Authors: Fernandez-Nieto D, Segurado-Miravalles G, Gonzalez-Cantero A, Ortega-Quijano D, Jimenez-Cauhe J, Boixeda P Abstract Demodex mites (namely D. folliculorum and D. Brevis) are commonly considered commensals of human pilosebaceous units. However, they are thought to play a pathogenic role in several skin conditions, specially pityriasis folliculorum, rosacea, perioral dermatitis and hair folliculitis.1 Several studies report an increased density of demodex mites in patients with rosacea (papulopustular and erythematotelangiectatic forms.
