About Us


Our research spans across many dermatology conditions relating to the skin to offer our patients the best opportunities to participate in research.

Our primary areas of research focus on skin cancers, eczema, psoriasis, acne and the management of these conditions.  Within our research we explore a wide range of treatments such as light therapy, surgical techniques, antibiotic drugs as well as a range of emollients.

We are fortunate to have good relationships with the UK Dermatology Clinical Trials Network with whom we collaborate with for some of our research studies and work very closely with the Trust's excellent Dermatology Specialist Nurse service who offer vital support in our delivery of our research.
