Clinical Trials

The Clinical Trials Department has been involved in over 100 clinical trials in the last 30 years. Many of these trials have led to life-changing treatments used for a wide range of conditions including skin cancer, psoriasis and rosacea.

The research activities of the Clinical Trials Department are supervised and coordinated by specialist dermatologist, Associate Professor Peter Foley, assisted by Associate Professor Chris Baker, and Associate Professor Alvin Chong.
