Between 25% and 33% of the Irish population suffer from a dermatological condition at any one time. Each year, 15% of all general practitioner visits in Ireland are attributed to a skin complaint; the fourth most common reason to visit a GP.
At UCD Charles Institute, our vision is to become a world leader in dermatology research and training. Through our research programmes, we aim to find new treatments for skin diseases.
We will work in partnership with dermatology clinicians, researchers in academia and industry, and patient advocacy organisations to improve patient care and outcomes for those living with skin conditions.
Patient information on a range of other skin conditions are available on the website of the Irish Skin Foundation.
