Hair Disorders

Clinical investigations include the etiology, treatment, and the psychological impact of hair and scalp disorders. Research activities in telogen effluvium focus on a standardized measurement for hair loss. Investigational drug studies are focusing on the treatment of androgenetic alopecia.

In conjunction with Jeffrey J. Miller, M.D. and Michael D. Ioffreda, M.D., studies on the histologic characteristics of hair follicles and sebaceous glands in various forms of alopecia are being conducted, along with examining the expression of integrin adhesion molecules on hair follicles during the hair cycle.
