Research Summary

Dr. Chien serves as co-director of the Department of Dermatology’s Cutaneous Translational Research Program, where scientists collaborate and conduct clinical research trials.

Previous clinical trials focused on patient attitudes and molecular markers of skin aging in young and elderly age groups. She also conducted a clinical and molecular assessment of factors associated with perioral wrinkling, which hypothesized that, while younger skin may display visual signs of aging, it actually has aging pathways already active on the molecular level, as in the case in older skin.

Clinical Trials
