The Dermatology Department at St James’s hospital, has a long-established research program over the last 19 years. At all stages the research program is supported by the CRF. Our work centres on the most common inflammatory skin condition in adults, namely atopic dermatitis (eczema), and rare genetic skin disorders.

We run several investigator-led and industry centred drug trials for adults with eczema and for genetic skin disorders.

Our outlook is to continue to work on parallel mechanistic studies and early stage clinical trials, all with the aim of bringing better treatments to patients with debilitating skin diseases.
