The Research Unit is currently co-ordinating several different research projects, including in-house studies and collaborative research projects. If you are interested in running a research project at the Foundation, please contact the research team.
The Foundation provides a very unique platform for research, as the organisation not only accommodates for general dermatology services, but also specialised dermatology clinics and Mohs surgery. The Dermatopathology Department is also an extremely valuable asset for research at the Foundation, due to its large catalogue of common and unique cases of skin pathology, as well as the keen interest of staff members to undertake and assist with research projects.
Previous and current research projects topics include scar outcomes after dermatologic surgery, cost-effectiveness in Mohs surgery, pain during laser procedures, proteomics of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), and utilities in non melanoma skin cancer.
