Dr. Wei is a graduate of MIT and received her MD from Harvard Medical School’s HST program, where she was the recipient of the Doris Duke Fellowship for Clinical Research and graduated with honors with a thesis on the risk factors for multiple non-melanoma skin cancers. She completed her residency and served as chief resident at the University of Miami Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery/Jackson Memorial Hospital. During residency she was the recipient of the Celia & Samuel Resnik Research Award for her work on the risk factors on nodular melanoma in the Miami VA population. She joined the Brigham and Women’s Hospital faculty in 2016 and is currently the Director of the Bullous Disease Clinic, a growing referral base for autoimmune bullous disease patients in New England. The focus of her research has been on the epidemiology of cutaneous malignancies and autoimmune bullous diseases. Specifically, her research interests in autoimmune bullous diseases are two-fold: 1) Evaluating the mechanism and efficacy of novel treatments for autoimmune blistering diseases; and 2) Evaluating the psychological and quality of life impact of autoimmune bullous diseases. In the area of therapeutics, she is working to study the potential benefit of both existing and up-and-coming treatments to fill in treatment gaps in this patient population. She was also the recipient of the 2017-2018 Research Grant from the International Pemphigus and Pemphigoid Foundation to study the prevalence and impact of post-traumatic stress disorder in autoimmune bullous disease patients.
