Director, Bullous Disease Clinic
Brigham and Women's Hospital
Harvard Medical School
I am the Director of the Bullous Disease Clinic at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, a growing referral base for autoimmune bullous disease patients in New England. The focus of my research has been on the epidemiology of cutaneous malignancies and autoimmune bullous diseases. Specifically, my research interests in autoimmune bullous diseases are two-fold: 1. Evaluating the mechanism and efficacy of novel treatments for autoimmune blistering diseases; 2. Evaluating the psychological and quality of life impact of autoimmune blistering diseases. In the area of therapeutics, I am working to study the potential benefit of both existing and up-and-coming treatment to fill in treatment gaps in our patient population. In the area of psychological and quality of life impact, I am the recipient of the 2017-2018 Research Grant from the International Pemphigus and Pemphigoid Foundation (IPPF) to study the prevalence and impact of post-traumatic stress disorder in autoimmune bullous disease patients.
