Grants & Outreach

The goal of our Center is to make the world a better place for patients. To do that, our Center actively supports physicians, scientists and physician scientists who wish to carry out translational human skin disease research, research that will be applicable and useful in improving patient care.

We aim to support investigators already carrying out human translational research, researchers who have worked mostly in mice but wish to translate their findings into humans, and young investigators who, when tooled up with access to tissues and cutting edge human techniques, will choose to forge new careers in human translational skin disease research.

The Human Skin Disease Resource Center is committed to supporting diversity in skin disease research. We have funds available to support individuals from groups underrepresented in medicine who wish to carry our projects through the Center. Please click here to learn more and to apply.

Biennial International Conferences on Human Skin Disease

These conferences, held in Boston, Massachusetts, feature presentations by invited speakers who are world leaders in the field of human skin disease research. The goals of these conferences will be to present cutting-edge human skin disease research and introductions to new human analytic techniques to physicians, physician scientists and basic science researchers. Our next conference will be held in the summer of 2023 at the Fairmont Copley Plaza, Boston, Massachusetts.
