Dermatology scholarly activity
Affiliated Dermatology has a strong relationship with the Midwestern University Biomedical Research Department. Active ongoing projects are under the supervision of Dr. Elizabeth Hull; more research projects and funding are being developed as the program continues to grow.
In-house active research projects include:
- Tissue bank collection for melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma tumors.
- Genomic studies in patients at high risk for melanoma and other cancers.
- Survey studies.
Research requirements include:
- Attend the basic science course at the American Academy of Dermatology annual conference as a PGY3 resident.
- All residents are required to be working on a research project at any given time. This is tracked by monthly in-house research meetings with the Chief of Staff.
