Types of research

Dermatological research is a very big field and stretches from animal work and basic lab-based research on human samples to population-based studies. For instance, you might want to work on a mouse psoriasis model to develop new drug targets, or you could conduct a study among school children looking at environmental risk factors for eczema and how they interact with skin barrier genetics. You might also get involved in running a clinical trial (UKDCTN), or you might consider doing a systematic review, something you can do wherever you are (Cochrane Skin Group).
