For Researchers

Through PeDRA, there is now an opportunity for every dermatologist to support or be a part of groundbreaking pediatric research.

How can we dermatologists seeing children get involved in PeDRA?

Item6BPeDRA is now engaged in organizational planning, bringing relevant issues in conducting pediatric research to the forefront. At PeDRA’s first annual research conference, attendees determined immediate and some long-term research priorities. PeDRA activated research workgroups at the 2013 conference to begin tackling identified gaps in the science and care of specific diseases.  Groups initiated cover several specific diseases captured under: birthmarks, inflammatory skin disease; diseases of cornification, and genodermatoses.  To learn more, view our Research Areas and  view our Current Studies.
