Getting Involved

Pediatric dermatologists, trainees, research associates or coordinators, and other professionals can join PeDRA at various levels of membership. Corporate members and advocacy partners also have opportunities to engage with PeDRA.

PeDRA encourages participation in our conference annually to set pediatric research priorities, learn about conducting collaborative research, and organize multisite study groups. Learn about the PeDRA Annual Conference.

As research collaboration takes hold and studies move forward, so do opportunities open up for joining study groups working on specific disease investigations. Join research underway.
