Skin Health Institute


We combine research, training and treatment under the one roof to deliver the latest and most effective patient treatments.

The Skin Health Institute's Research Division makes a vital contribution to the study of skin disease, skin cancers and melanoma in Australia. The Research Division is made up of three departments:

Other areas of research currently being conducted at the Institute include Dr Victoria Mar's research into the early detection and management of cutaneous melanoma, and Dr Alvin Chong's research on melanoma associated with organ transplant patients.

The Skin Health Institute is a collaborator with Probity Medical Research, a Canadian-based clinical trials consortium, presided over by Dr Kim Papp, a world authority on conducting clinical trials.

The Institute wishes to acknowledge the generous grant by Capital Radiology for a one-year dermatology research fellowship.
