SkinCare Research is a division of SkinCare Physicians. Our research facility is world renowned, and through the collaborative efforts of our research group we have helped to advance the field of dermatology, skin surgery, laser and cosmetic surgery.

Our physicians have been performing clinical research in medical, procedural and aesthetic dermatology for over 25 years. In 2000, SkinCare Research was created to formalize these research efforts. Since its inception, we have performed over 30 studies, including investigator initiated, sponsor initiated, FDA monitored, prospective controlled, pilot and full phase III studies.
The study coordinators are Kathy Petrell, Joaninha Depina, Sarah Rizzo, Shachenika Jean and Lise Schmidt. They can be reached at (617) 848-1638. There are also three board certified dermatologists on our research staff who are fellows at SkinCare Physicians, and assist in the direction and implementation of clinical trials.
SkinCare Research follows the guidelines of Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and is proud of its high standards, thorough completion of all clinical trials and research within their time lines, and our well known record of timely publication in first line medical and scientific journals.
