Based in the Tower Wing of Guy’s Hospital, our Institute is derived from St John's Hospital for Diseases of the Skin that was founded in London in 1868.
We play a leading role in the training of dermatologists both in the UK and around the world. Our MSc in Clinical Dermatology is world-renowned, and we have an active education programme providing specialist dermatology training.
Our research facilities are designed to enable translational human skin research and include cell biology (including cell transfection), immuno-labelling and photomicroscopy, molecular genetic facilities and in vivo sampling techniques (phototesting, skin biopsy and DNA sampling), with appropriate storage techniques.
St John's Institute of Dermatology dates back over 150 years.
