The Giants of Dermatology awards recognizes leading physicians and researchers in the field of dermatology whose landmark successes, ongoing inspiration and career-long dedication redefine what is possible for this specialty.

This prestigious honor celebrates the achievements of the visionaries who have devoted their time, talent and resources to improving care for the millions of patients and their families affected by skin conditions and diseases. Their discoveries have propelled the field forward and established the building blocks for future breakthroughs.

  • Daniel Mark Siegel, M.D., FAAD
  • Robert S. Kirsner, M.D., Ph.D., FAAD
  • C. William Hanke, M.D., MPH, FAC
