Dr. Lloyd Miller, Associate Professor of Dermatology and Orthopedic Surgery at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, takes us on a translational tour of the innate immune response, highlighting specific aberrations in cutaneous pathology and drugable targets.
Translational Lecture Series
An on-going, evidence-based series from George Washington University, the Translational Science Dermatology Lecture Series provides dermatologists and residents with access to the latest bench-to-bedside research and practical pearls.
Dr. David Polsky, Professor of Dermatology and Pathology, Alfred W. Kopf, MD Professor of Dermatologic Oncology in the Department of Dermatology at NYU Langone Medical Center delivers a stelar presentation on both developing tools to better stratify risk factors for melanoma, and identifying novel biomarkers to allow for melanoma treatment efficacy monitoring and progress.
Special thanks to Genentech for support of and exhibition at this event.
Dr. Jon Zippin, Assistant Attending Dermatologist and Assistant Professor of Dermatology at Weill Medical College of Cornell, elucidates the complexity of cAMP biology and the translational impact of PDE4 inhibition as it relates to chronic inflammatory skin diseases. Tune in to learn why targeting this pathway is clinically meaningful but also where more work is needed to improve outcomes.
Dr. Diane Thiboutot, endowed Professor of Dermatology and Associate Dean of Clinical and Translational Research Education at the Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine in Hershey, PA, underscores the extraordinary biological complexity of one of the most common skin diseases, Acne Vulgaris.
Dr. Amy Paller, Walter J. Hamlin Professor and Chair of Dermatology & Professor of Pediatrics at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, Illinois, delivers a presentation discussing the cause and treatment of pediatric Atopic Dematitis, including co-morbidities, epidermal barrier impairment, and compliance issues.
Special thanks to Encore Dermatology for support and/or exhibition at the live activity.
Dr. Abrar Qureshi, Professor and Chair of Department of Dermatology at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, reviews his research to uncover the biological basis for many of the co-morbidities associated with, and risk factors for, psoriasis. Through this clear and clinically oriented presentation, the common pathophysiological threads are elucidated with a focus on identifying preventive strategies and therapeutic targets for current and future treatments.
Dr. Gil Yosipovitch, Professor of Dermatology at University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, provides residents and physicians access to the latest bench research and practical pearls from a master in pruritus that will help them offer the highest quality evidence-based dermatological care.
