Basic Science Research

Basic science research at Johns Hopkins Dermatology is focused on answering questions about the skin's basic building blocks in order to better understand how to diagnose disease and customize treatments to individuals. 

The Garza Laboratory is conducing new research on hypotheses on basic skin questions that are directly relevant to skin disease in humans. Dr. Luis Garza and his laboratory staff are exploring how stem cell regeneration impacts wound healing, among other projects. 

The Miller Laboratory's goal is to understand mechanisms of protective immune responses against the common bacterial skin pathogen Staphylococcus aureus. To study these infections Dr. Miller and his team have employed advanced in vivo bioluminescence and fluorescence imaging techniques to track both bacterial clearance and the host immune response noninvasively and longitudinally over time.
