David Paige Smith Professor of Dermatology, Plastic Surgery & Otolaryngology; Section Chief
I founded the Section of Dermatologic Surgery & Cutaneous Oncology in the Department of Dermatology at Yale in 1988. Since that time the program has grown to combine patient-centered sub-specialty care with ongoing translational research. In 1996 we were part of the team that discovered the PTCH1 gene. Other areas of research include melanoma, skin imaging, anti-aging devices and treatments, wound healing, and the genetics of non-melanoma skin cancer. I have trained 19 fellows in Procedural Dermatology (ACGME Fellowship) and have 3 faculty colleagues in the Section.
