In addition to offering diagnostic services, the dermatopathology special service also plays an integral role in research related to dermatopathology. Many of the research projects in collaboration with the dermatopathology special service are related to the pathogenesis of skin diseases, with the hope that furthering our current understanding of how skin diseases develop may lead to more specific and effective diagnostic tests and therapeutics.
