Research at Brown Dermatology

About our team

The Clinical and Translational Research Program (CTRP) comprises a multi-disciplinary research group focused on hypothesis-driven work on a wide variety of dermatologic diseases. Clinicians, epidemiologists, post-doctoral researchers, medical students, undergraduate students, and administrators make up this unique team, which gathers its strength from this rich network of experts working in an exciting and exceedingly collaborative environment. The CTRP functions under the mission of investigating an inclusive range of diseases, from common cancers to rare orphan diseases, in an effort to measurably expand our understanding, as well as to move discoveries from the conceptual world into clinical practice.
