The Skin Sciences Institute is an interdisciplinary team of investigators who conduct basic and translational skin research, provide the basis for evidence-based skin practices and promote the skin as an important aspect of primary healthcare delivery.
The institute’s investigators come from divisions throughout Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, the Shriners Hospitals for Children − Cincinnati and the University of Cincinnati Colleges of Medicine, Pharmacy, Nursing and Engineering.
We also collaborate on skin-based quality-improvement initiatives, including those within the Newborn Intensive Care Unit and the University Hospital NICU, the Ohio Perinatal Quality Collaborative and the Pressure Ulcer Collaborative.
Graduate students from the College of Pharmacy conduct research within the program’s project areas, and clinical projects are staffed by clinical nurse researchers from Patient Services.
Our research program covers a range of skin health topics:
A key research focus is the application of multimodal quantitative skin imaging. Using this technology, we measure the response of cutaneous conditions, such as wounds and pressure ulcers, to various treatments. The results will help establish best practices for clinical skin care.
