Division of Dermatology

Clinical Research

The Einstein-Montefiore Division of Dermatology is actively involved in clinical trials. We are investigating therapies for various skin conditions including psoriasis, wound healing, and eczema. We are committed to examining new therapies, instruments, and devices for the treatment of skin disease. Under the direction of Dr. Steven Cohen, Professor and Chief, our primary goals are to advance the basic and translational science behind dermatology through clinical research, as well as offer our patients the opportunity to participate in the most recent advances in treatments.

Some examples of current trials include:

  1. Amgen Study- Phase IV study reviewing long-term safety of Enbrel in patients with chronic plaque psoriasis.
