Research Focus

My research focuses on :a) the development of genetic markers to diagnose Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma at an early stage, and to determine its prognosis, b) diagnosing and treating allergic and irritant contact dermatitis, occupational or not, and to monitor trends in allergic contact dermatitis through membership in the North American Contact Dermatitis Group.
