The Department of Dermatology is actively engaged in numerous clinical research pursuits, working towards an enhanced understanding of cutaneous disease and innovative new treatments for patient care. As a referral center for complex dermatologic cases, an established collaborative partner with physicians at the National Institutes of Health, and a diverse patient population, GW Dermatology is uniquely positioned for excellence in clinical research.
Current projects include investigator initiated studies and industry supported clinical trials. Psoriasis, atopic dermatitis and autoimmune dermatology are of particular interest, and comprise a major portion of research efforts. Examples include:
- Multi-center clinical trials for new biologic drug treatments of severe psoriasis and atopic dermatitis
- Multi-center open registry of patients with psoriasis who are candidates for systemic therapy including biologics
A list of current studies and recruitment status may be found online through the ClinicalTrials.gov database.
