2022 Research Award Funding
Despite the continuing pandemic, the DF was able to award $2.5 million in research support. This year’s 49 award recipients represent 29 academic institutions located across the U.S. Awards were funded in 13 mid-career, career development, fellowship, and grant categories. These emerging and mid-career investigators will pursue novel questions that will expand the specialty’s knowledge and understanding in a broad range of dermatologic conditions and topics such as immunotherapy, melanoma, skin of color, wound healing, atopic dermatitis, and epidemiology.
