Dermatology Foundation Provides Career Development Award to Dr. Wanat

Dr. Karolyn Wanat has received a Dermatopathology Research Career Development Award from the Dermatology Foundation.  The DF's Research Awards Program offers a variety of awards that are intended to advance the early academic careers and research efforts of physicians and scientists in dermatology and cutaneous biology. An emphasis is placed on supporting research that benefits the dermatology community at large and has significant potential to advance patient care. It is the expectation that the recipients of Foundation awards will be tomorrow's expert teachers, innovative investigators and master clinicians in dermatology

Dr. Wanat's project, "Pathogenesis of cutaneous leishmaniasis: role of mast cells and eosinophils" was one of five dermatopathology research career development awards given by the Dermatology Foundation in 2015.
