Professor Sara Brown was recently successful in her application for a Wellcome Trust Senior Research Fellowship in Clinical Science:




Sara’s research focuses on an investigation of genetic mechanisms in atopic eczema; her grant proposal was reviewed and critiqued by members of the UK TREND steering committee and her work will involve the analysis of DNA samples collected by collaborative groups in London and Newcastle as well as Dundee.



The UK Translational Research Network in Dermatology (UK TREND) has been established to support, facilitate and further develop internationally-leading, translational research in skin biology and skin disease across the UK for the direct benefit of patient care.
