The Group for Research and Assessment of Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis (GRAPPA) held a trainee symposium at its 2021 virtual meeting. Dermatology and rheumatology trainees presented their work on psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis (PsA). This report briefly reviews 5 oral presentations: prediction of cardiovascular events in psoriatic disease (PsD), correlation between spine abnormalities and clinical findings, biomechanical stress as a trigger for PsA, differences in DNA methylation among twins with PsD, and critical proteins associated with induction of PsD. In addition, we highlight 22 posters broadly discussing clinical and molecular implications of PsD.
