Allergic contact dermatitis is a type 4 T-cell driven hypersensitivity reaction. Its pathogenesis is poorly understood. The goals of my research is to gain a deeper understanding of allergic contact dermatitis, its pathogenesis, and its clinical implications through a series of research questions that extend from the bench to the bedside. Students who take a full research year will receive a generous stipend through the MGH Department of Dermatology. There are 3 primary aims of the research project 1) Using available biobanks such as the Mass General Brigham Biobank, All of Us Biobank, and other international biobanks (UK Biobank), we seek to uncover the genetic underpinnings predisposing the development of allergic contact dermatitis. This project requires programming capabilities including statistical packages such as R. 2) Obtain biopsy samples of patients with allergic contact dermatitis in the office. These samples will be submitted to collaborators for single cell RNA sequencing to explore biomarkers associated with allergic contact dermatitis 3) Using the North American Contact Dermatitis Research Group database, students will have the opportunity to publish numerous cross sectional reviews to gain a deeper understanding of allergic contact dermatitis and allergens Most research fellows graduate with > 10 publications, numerous meeting poster/oral presentations, and exposure to majority of the clinical faculty members at MGH Dermatology.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
