Penn Skin Biology and Diseases Resource-based Center

Welcome to the Penn SBDRC!

Rapid translation of basic information in cutaneous biology to preclinical studies and clinical practice is becoming a realistic prospect due to the ever-increasing sophistication of basic research on development, regeneration, immunology, and diseases of the skin, together with powerful new technologies for gathering and analyzing genome-wide and population based data at Penn SBDRC.

The goals of the Penn SBDRC are to leverage our strengths in basic and translational science and dermatoepidemiology, to support outstanding basic research in cutaneous biology and diseases and to promote the critical transition from bench research to bedside practice.
