Postdoctoral Clinical Research Fellowship Training Grant

Directed by Dr. James T. Elder and designed to foster the development of clinical and basic research in dermatology, the U-M Training Program in Cell and Molecular Dermatology operates in an exciting and supportive learning environment, integrating clinical and basic science knowledge relevant to dermatology.

Our basic research program offers training opportunities in molecular biology, genetics, cell biology and biochemistry as they relate to the skin. During your fellowship, you will use state-of-the-art research tools including genomics and gene expression array analysis, DNA sequencing, genetic linkage and transgenic mice, in addition to the traditional tools of biochemistry and molecular biology.

Our clinical and translational research program offers research training opportunities in cutaneous oncology, cosmetic dermatology and clinical pharmacology. In each of these areas, you will work closely with the basic research program to facilitate the direct study of normal and abnormal human skin, while honing your skills in research design and analysis, outcomes analysis and cost-effectiveness analysis.

With funding from our NIH Training Grant and other outside sources, our program offers a variety of training opportunities for medical students, dermatology residents and postdoctoral fellows.
