Gil Yosipovitch Lab
The Miami Itch Center, directed by Dr. Gil Yosipovitch, is one of the nation’s only comprehensive, multidisciplinary clinics dedicated to the diagnosis and management of a variety of conditions including: atopic eczema, psoriasis, prurigo nodularis, and neuropathic itch.
Our researchers are highly engaged in translational medicine—the process of turning scientific findings into new forms of diagnosis and treatment—with the goal of bringing new and better treatments to patients. The Miami Itch Center is actively involved in research that advances the understanding of itch and itch-related skin diseases. We are continuously recruiting participants for new and ongoing studies related to these topics. Should you be interested in participating in any of these studies, or have any questions regarding studies that might not be listed, please contact us.
