Our research

Disease focus

Most of our research focuses on atopic eczema, but we are also interested in a number of other skin conditions.

The majority of our research is funded through the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) or medical charities.

Research prioritization

We have sucessfully conducted a number of Priority Setting Partnerships (PSP) to identify and prioritise treatment uncertainties for skin diseases.

Skin Priority Setting Partnerships

Outcome measures

We are active partners in international projects to establish core outcome sets for skin disease.

This work helps ensure that research evidence can be more easily combined and improves the quality of research.
