10.jpgThe Department of Dermatology has a strong tradition in scientific research. All faculty members are actively engaged in the translational research, to expand the knowledge base of the specialty and to improve patient care. Present research activities include clinical investigation of inflammatory skin diseases (e.g. psoriasis and atopic dermatitis), hair follicle biology, autoimmune skin diseases (e.g. SLE, DM, SSD, pemphigus and pemphigoid), basic epidermal regulation and pharmacological study of retinoids, etc. Basic research in areas of immunology and molecular genetics have been expanded. The research programs of acne and psoriasis are renowned nationally. Defining the molecular basis of skin diseases, particularly autoimmune diseases, has established the Department as a leading center for the investigation of many skin diseases. A multidisciplinary approach has resulted from the collaboration with other scientists in the fields of immunology, oncology, allergy, rheumatology and molecular biology. The Department is committed to clinical investigation, and applies the translated discoveries in the laboratory directly to the improvements in patient care and in the understanding of skin diseases. The Dermatology Department has been graded as a National Key Clinical Specialty and is now sponsored by both Ministry of Health and Ministry of Finance.
