The NYAM Section on Dermatology presented its first Emerging Leaders in Dermatology Night on September 17, 2013. At the event, junior faculty from the tri-state area presented their interests and works for an enthusiastic audience of nearly 100 dermatology chairs, residency program directors, mentors, and residents. The event was initiated as a means of instigating and engendering cross-institutional collaboration and interaction in the field of dermatology.
The event featured presentations by the following professionals:
Reena Rupani, MD, FAAD of the SUNY Downstate Medical Center, who presented research on "Developing a Curriculum on Integrative Dermatology."
Caroline Halverstam, MD of Albert Einstein College of Medicine, who presented on "Lichen Planopilaris: A Primer to Diagnosis and Treatment."
Oscar Colegio, MD of the Yale University School of Medicine, who presented on "Functional Polarization of Tumor-associated Macrophages by Tumor-derived Metabolites."
Ali Jabbari, MD of Columbia University, who presented on "Targeting JAK signaling pathways for the treatment of cutaneous lupus."
Jonathan Zippin, MD, PhD of Weill Cornell Medical College, who presented on "Peristomal allergic contact dermatitis in cancer"
Jennifer Stein, MD, PhD of the New York University School of Medicine, who presented on "Dermoscopic patterns of acral melanocytic lesions in two metropolitan areas of the United States."
“The Emerging Leaders of Dermatology night welcomed a diverse group of young academics who shared with the metro area dermatology community their advances in a broad range of scientific and clinical area including scarring alopecia, pigmented lesions, cutaneous lupus, and alternative medicine,” said Section Chair Adam Friedman, MD, of the Division of Dermatology at Montefiore-Einstein College of Medicine. “The resounding response by both attendees and industry sponsors only fuel our mission to provide even more programming of the highest caliber to our colleagues.”
