The Master of Science in Skin Biology and Dermatological Sciences program at University of Miami is unique in its depth and breadth because it covers basic science research and laboratory techniques. In addition, the program considers a variety of additional skills to help you succeed in your career—including management skills, grant writing, regulatory issues, enterprise formation issues, and clinical problems.
Skin biology includes many biological processes: development, perpetual differentiation and barrier maintenance, stem cell biology, tissue repair, and regeneration, native and adapted immunity and genetic disorders just to name a few. The areas represented in our research base include skin aging, barrier, biochemistry, cell and stem cell biology, genomics, inflammation, immunology, microbiology, pathophysiology, and pharmacology, as well as clinical research including areas of a variety of skin disorders, aging, aesthetics, cancer, itching and wounds as clinical touch-points.
