Craig A. Elmets, M.D., is professor and chair of dermatology at UAB. He also is director of the UAB Skin Diseases Research Center, a federally funded center. Dr. Elmets' major research interests focus on environmental influences on the skin and on the immune system. Among topics he frequently is interviewed on his multi-center study to test a "morning after" DNA-repair cream, dimericine to mitigate sun damage to the skin. He is an expert in the immunology of the skin. His studies were the first to show that photodynamic therapy has immunosuppressive effects which may reduce the overall efficacy of this form of cancer therapy.
