The center aims to shed light on disease processes and markers that can improve treatment. As such, Dr. Chien measures success in terms of data presented, grants obtained and papers published, all of which are growing steadily.
The department of dermatology will continue to expand the CTReP program in response to voids faculty members observe in their dermatologic care, she says. CTReP’s goal is one with a team-oriented approach, providing resources to

Dr. Chien reports no relevant fi nancial interests. The CTReP has received grants from Galderma, Johnson & Johnson, L’Oreal, Kyocera, Lutronic, Mela Sciences, Pfizer, SkinMedica, Unilever and Walgreens Boots Alliance.
