Research

In order for new and improved medications to be available from your doctor, they must be thoroughly investigated to prove their safety and effectiveness. St George Dermatology strongly believes in the importance of research, to be able to provide better results for our patients now and in the future, so we are heavily involved in clinical trials. Trials doctor, Dr Anthea Mulcahy, works closely with Associate Professor Stephen Shumack to look after our patients, and assess the results of the new medications. We are currently involved in eleven trials, focusing on Psoriasis, Eczema, Acne, and Actinic Keratosis (pre-sun cancers). We are always interested in doing the best for our patients, so please feel free to discuss the option of becoming involved in a trial if you are having ongoing issues with your skin.
