Organisation profile

Aims and objectives

The department of dermatology at Bispebjerg Hospital focus on translational research from lab to patients, with the overall objective to develop innovative, international research for large dermatological patient populations.




Focus areas

The research areas of special interest comprise skin oncology and UV exposure. Researchers work in an interdisciplinary and translational framework, focusing on developing new dermatological treatments to high risk patients.

The department’s paraclinical research on skin cancer centres on mechanisms of photocarcinogenesis, while clinical research includes investigations of skin cancer prophylaxis, individual risk assessment with non-invasive, quantifying techniques, and early interventional trials.

Further dedicated research areas represent cutaneous lymphomas, eczema and skin barrier, type 4 allergy, work-related eczema, chronic ulcers, connective tissue diseases, psoriasis, venerology, tattoo reactions, laser dermatology, drug delivery, and databases on atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, hidrosadenitissuppurativa, and chronic urticaria.



Disciplines, methods and tools

The department offers access to innovative research facilities with specialized UV- and laser equipment, radiotherapy, in vitro drug delivery models, imaging techniques (reflectance confocal microscopy, OCT, ultrasound), fluorescence microscopy, fluorescence photography, spectroscopy, and standardised photography. Animal facilities with murine skin cancer models. Laboratory facilities with cell culture, molecular biology and photo biology. GCP clinical trial unit.
