Biography

Following a degree and a PhD in Biochemistry from the University of Sheffield, Joanne spent five years in clinical research in the pharmaceutical industry. She joined the Centre of Evidence Based Dermatology in 2003, and since then has been involved in the design and implementation of several studies including a study of cost-effectiveness of treatments for cutaneous warts, an RCT to determine whether prophylactic antibiotics can prevent cellulitis, an RCT to compare doxycycline and prednisolone for bullous pemphigoid, a proof of principle trial to establish whether imiquimod is suitable for treating lentigo maligna and a study of antibiotics for wound healing in epidermolysis bullosa. Joanne is currently working on a large national RCT to investigate whether regular emollient use from birth can prevent the onset of eczema in high risk babies.
