Translational Science Lecture Series

 

The Translational Science Dermatology Lecture Series from George Washington School of Medicine and Health Sciences, hosted by Dr. Adam Friedman, Associate Professor of Dermatology and Residency Program Director, aims to provide residents and physicians access to the latest bench research and practical pearls from the masters that will help them offer the highest quality evidence-based dermatological care. These lectures focus on cutting edge advances in the diagnosis and management of skin disorders and cutaneous diseases including acne, rosacea, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, pruritus and melanoma. 


First Installment

Journal of Drugs in DermatologyThe “Itch From Bedside to Bench” installment of the Translational Science Dermatology Lecture Series from George Washington School of Medicine and Health Sciences, hosted by Adam Friedman, Residency Program Director, is presented by Gil Yosipovitch, MD FAAD, Professor of Dermatology at University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. This lecture aims to provide 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.
