Clinical Dermatology Research Department

Schweiger Dermatology started conducting research studies in 2014. The research department was created to become involved in the advancement of new treatments and procedures in the field of dermatology. Our mission is to be on the front lines of dermatologic research to evaluate the science and support the development of ground breaking novel treatments.
We have state of the art facilities equipped with advanced treatment devices, photography equipment, CLIA certified labs, secure storage locations, HIPAA compliant patient database (over 350,000), and highly experienced staff. With the new addition of the dedicated research center at 110 East 55th Street on Floor 13, Schweiger Dermatology is devoting an increased effort towards expanding research activities.
