Celia and Samuel Resnik Annual Research Day
The Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery is hosting its second annual Celia & Samuel Resnik Research Day on June 2, 2018. The event will take place at the newly renovated Shalala Student Center at the Coral Gables Campus from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and will feature presentations by our Department’s faculty, residents and fellows. Scientific poster presentations will be a key component of the event.
Department Research Background
Research at the Department of Dermatology & Cutaneous Surgery at the University of Miami Miller School Of Medicine consists of multidisciplinary basic, translational and clinical research groups. Our research efforts integrate basic science, preclinical studies, drug development, clinical and epidemiologic research.
These efforts provide a unique environment in which basic science discovery can be tested in multitude pre-clinical animal models (including primary human; murine and porcine), developed into potential therapy and tested in clinical trials. The research areas represented in our research base include aging, inflammation, microbiology, genomics, pharmacology, biochemistry, cell and stem cell biology, biochemistry and bacteriology as well as clinical areas of research in cutaneous disorders that may be associated with biology/pathology of the eye, gastro-intestinal tract, diabetes, cancer and paralysis, to name a few.
Although research expertise includes general skin disorders our major areas of interests are biology, pathology and treatment of wound healing, skin cancer, itch, inflammation and skin infection as well as a wide spectrum of hair disorders. Our goal is to utilize cutting edge technologies to advance science of skin biology and bring new discoveries from bench to patients at the bedside.
