Dermatology Research Fellowship

Dermatology Research Fellowship

UC San Diego Dermatology is offering a non-ACGME accredited research fellowship opportunity for a highly motivated individual interested in clinical and translational dermatology research starting June/July 2021.

The fellow will gain experience in conducting clinical trials in dermatology under the mentorship of Dr. Tissa Hata, Director of the UC San Diego Dermatology Clinical Trials Unit, with close collaboration with Dr. Richard Gallo.

As a result of the collaboration, the clinical trials unit has a broad range of trials ranging from industry sponsored therapeutic trials, to NIH sponsored investigator initiated trials. The clinical fellow in this arena will gain experience in organizing and operating research protocols and clinical trials of therapeutic agents in the dermatologic diseases.
