On behalf of Dr. Stephen Cohen and Dr. Diana Lee, we wanted to share a research opportunity at Albert Einstein in NY for the coming academic year.

The Director of Pediatric Dermatology at Einstein, Dr. Diana Lee, has started a robust Genodermatosis Treatment Center. The numbers of rare and exceptional patients who are being seen in this clinical setting is growing; new and exciting findings regarding genetic abnormalities are growing; and, the need for more rigorous organization of this unique pediatric cohort is growing. Dr. Lee is very interested in working with a student who may want to assist with many scholarly/research projects. Opportunities to become familiar with these patients, as well as general pediatric dermatology, and interface with the enriched clinical environment at Einstein will undoubtedly lead to many tangible rewards, including the application of research techniques, clinical experience, and publications. If interested, please contact Dr. Lee at dilee@montefiore.org
