Committed to Developing Improved Therapeutics
The Murdough Family Center for Psoriasis, was created by a generous gift from the Murdough Foundation, in order to bring benefit to more patients with psoriasis. The Murdough Family Center for Psoriasis incorporates both the psoriasis research and treatment efforts of the medical center, and creates new community interfaces and a complete approach to both the mind and the body aspects of psoriasis.
Fifty-eight percent of psoriasis patients experience inadequate treatment because current major therapies are sometimes ineffective, unavailable, or unsatisfactory. Current major therapies often help psoriasis, but can increase skin aging, skin cancer, liver or kidney toxicity, blood lipids, or blood pressure. The Murdough Family Center for Psoriasis is committed to seeking ways to develop improved therapeutic approaches without the above shortcomings.
Murdough Family Psoriasis Fellowship
The Murdough Family Center for Psoriasis at University Hospital Cleveland Medical Center supports a full time Fellowship position, established by a generous gift from the Murdough Foundation. The Fellowship is intended to advance psoriasis research and treatment. The Psoriasis Center fellow coordinates clinical and research activities within the center, and participates in basic, translational, and/or clinical research projects under the supervision of Drs. Kevin Cooper and Neil Korman.
