Amidst a growing sea of scientific work focused on skin disorders in adults, but only a limited amount in children, pediatric dermatologists in 2012 founded PeDRA, the Pediatric Dermatology Research Alliance. PeDRA hopes to better treat and cure dermatologic diseases in infants, children and adolescents by fostering collaborative clinical, translational, and basic science research.
Thanks to generous seed funding from the Society for Pediatric Dermatology (SPD), PeDRA is establishing a multi-site, collaborative network – a platform for high quality clinical investigations and bench research.
