About us


This area has today three main research directions that we want to strengthen; skin cancer, inflammation and genodermatoses (hereditary skin diseases).

We have a broad national and international collaboration and we want to expand with researchers in medicine, chemistry, physics, epidemiology and genetics. Our goal is to build on our tradition of innovative translational research which is the key to groundbreaking clinical research.


In education, we want to continue to increase the number of students who do their degree projects with us and support our teachers’ pedagogical development in preparation for the planning of the new medical education and to continue to develop all ongoing digitalization projects that we have initiated in recent years. The vision is that students in the future will receive an even more high-quality theoretical and practical education in dermatology and venereology.
