Dermatology Clinical Trials & Prospective Studies

The Department of Dermatology is currently involved in several clinical trials and registries in the areas of:


Dermatology Patient Data Registry: The purpose is to collect retrospective and prospective demographic, clinical (including photographs), survey data, pathology, management and outcome data relevant to numerous skin cancers, tumors and dermatologic diseases of interest. We will assess where there are gaps in access to care and teledermatology and current knowledge surrounding presentation, prognosis, management and outcomes. We will have separate sections for the various types of skin cancer, tumors and dermatologic diagnoses

UNMC Dermatology Tissue Bank: We developed a UNMC Dermatology Tissue and Blood Bank which aims to collect excess tissue and extra blood from patients with dermatologic diseases at UNMC for the purpose of future genetic, cellular, molecular and clinical database studies. The goal of this project is to develop a cohort of samples that is representative of all Dermatology patients.

New studies are also being added, so check this page often for updates.
