REPORT FROM THE TRUSTEES: to Meet the Needs of Medical and Surgical Dermatology

                      oday, at the beginning of a new century, the Dermatology Foundation—like the specialty itself—is the
                      product of the rapid evolution medicine has experienced in the past 20 years. From minimally-funded
                      one-year grants and fellowships, the Foundation is fully committed to developing the research
                      and teaching careers of emerging physician-scientists through multi-year
                      awards. Currently, these multi-year allocations—with stipends of $55,000/
                      year—are supporting investigators in basic science and developing careers in
                      medical dermatology, dermatologic surgery and healthcare policy. In 2003, the
           Foundation allocated $2.7 million for 54 research projects—more than half of which
           were for the multi-year career development awards.
                  As the Dermatology Foundation marks its 38th year, we briefly reflect on its
           tradition of investing in people—dermatologists and patients—and its overall mission of        Jouni J. Uitto, M.D.,
           supporting dermatology’s research base. In its formative years, the Foundation identified
           and funded young dermatologists who sought careers in investigative dermatology and
           teaching. While this innovative approach was a step in the right direction, the funding
           was modest. During 1967-68, the Foundation awarded a total of $70,000 in the form of
           14 one-year, $5,000 grants. This was made possible by the start up contributions of sev-
           eral specialty organizations, several corporations, as well as special gifts from individual
           dermatologists—who were the Dermatology Foundation’s first members.
                  During the 1970’s, one-year, $7,500 fellowships were added to the awards catego-
           ries, and funding more than doubled as the number of Foundation members grew along             Bruce U. Wintroub, M.D.
           with that of its industry partners. This growth pattern of support and funding continued Chairman, Board
           during the 1980’s at an increasingly accelerated pace so that by 1989 nearly $800,000          of Trustees
           was allocated to launch the careers of young, research and teaching-oriented dermatolo-
                  The vision for the future combines elements of the Foundation’s historic roots and the anticipated needs
           of medical and surgical dermatology. The DF will continue its commitment to people—dermatologists and
           patients—and to its overall mission of supporting the specialty’s research and teaching base. The DF will
           reach out to dermatologists and industry for increased support of multi-year awards—which build research
           and teaching careers and identify the specialty’s emerging leaders in medical and procedural dermatology—by
           enlisting more contributors and broadening the levels of participation. The DF will continue and expand its co-
           operation with other specialty organizations to include development of research and teaching careers in such
           areas as dermatologic surgery, medical and pediatric dermatology, dermatopathology, ichthyosis, and psoriasis.
                  A look at the accomplishments in 2002 which follow reinforces our conviction that—together—we can
           achieve this vision. In fact, 2002 can be regarded as the first step in a new era of progressive dermatology that
           the DF’s founders put in motion nearly 40 years ago.

           Governance & Administration
           The following colleagues concluded their terms as members of the Board of Trustees. We are pleased to
           recognize them and to extend our appreciation for their stewardship: Drs. Karyanne O. Duncan, Alice P.
           Pentland and Jorge L. Sanchez.
                Hundreds of dermatologists from the broad spectrum of medical and surgical dermatology volunteer
           on behalf of the Foundation. The Trustees wish to honor the work of the Leaders Society and Annenberg
           Circle physician network, the Association of Professors of Dermatology for providing faculty members for
           the Foundation’s annual CME program and the deliberations of the Medical and Scientific Committee. We truly
           appreciate their willingness to spend countless hours on behalf of the specialty. On behalf of our fellow Trust-
           ees, we thank all members of the specialty and our corporate partners for their sustaining support.

       Record Giving for Research
       Members of the specialty and industry continued to express record
       financial support of the Foundation and its goal of building the
       research and teaching careers of investigators across the spectrum

                   For All of Dermatology—
                   At the 2002 Annual meeting, the Foundation provided 54 research awards
                   totaling $2.7 million. More than half of the individual awards are directed
                   to the development of research and teaching careers in medical and
                   procedural dermatology through one of the multi-year Career Develop-
                   ment categories, each providing $55,000/year for up to three years. In
                   this way, the DF’s funding provides invaluable career-track continuity for
                   dermatologists across the broad spectrum of the specialty’s investigative
                   and teaching arenas.

                                                                                                 2002 Annual Report   3
             Roger Williams General Hospital
                                                    The emerging field of stem cell biology may open new avenues for treatment
                                                    of a variety of disorders. There is growing evidence that stem cells from one
             organ can make tissues of another organ. Our preliminary experiments indicate that some bone marrow cells can
             incorporate and possibly regenerate wounded skin tissues. This proposal will address identifying those bone mar-
             row cells that are capable of integrating into wounded skin and becoming skin tissues.

                                                 T cells protect the body from infection and cancer. New T cells develop in the
                                                 thymus, an organ that largely disappears by adulthood. After damage to the
             immune system, the ability to make new T cells is limited. We have reprogrammed skin cells to act as a surrogate
             thymus, allowing production of new T cells. It is our goal to eventually produce T cells that can be given to patients
             to treat infections and cancer.

             at Chapel Hill                       Melanoma, a potentially fatal and generally chemoresistant malignancy, is
                                                  rapidly increasing in incidence. NRAS and BRAF are the most commonly mu-
             tated oncogenes found in melanoma. In this study, the population-based frequency and mutational spectrum
             of NRAS/BRAF will be characterized and associated with subtype, potential precursors, risk and prognostic factors
             in primary melanoma. Clarifying the role of NRAS/BRAF in melanoma development, progression and heterogeneity
             would be expected to lead to better prevention, classification, and treatment.

             Unit that includes within its mission the advancement of care for organ transplant recipients with skin cancer: 1.
             identification of patients at highest risk for catastrophic disease and optimization of management of patients with
             overwhelming disease; 2. elucidation of unique mechanisms of tumor biology; and, 3. evaluation of novel prophylac-

                                               There is increasing evidence linking psoriasis with an increased risk of cancer.
                                               We will perform a study in over 150,000 psoriasis patients to determine if
        cancer rates are increased in these patients using the General Practice Research Database in the United Kingdom.
        The results of this study will have important implications for the care of psoriasis patients and will develop an im-
        portant new tool to study a variety of population based outcomes in psoriasis patients.

       Los Angeles                           Leishmaniasis is a disfiguring parasitic disease of the skin affecting nearly
                                             twelve million people worldwide. The organism invades human cells, exploits
       molecules within these cells to support its growth, multiplies until it destroys the host cell, and then invades the
       next cell. We will use functional genetic screening techniques to identify molecules involved in parasite invasion and
       evasion of the skin’s immune system. Identification of these molecules may lead to new targets for drug therapy.

       University of Pittsburgh
                                              Dendritic cells (DCs) are the most potent antigen presenting cells (APCs)
                                              and can elicit protective and therapeutic tumor immunity. We propose to
       develop DCs-based immunotherapies for the treatment of Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL). We will develop
       immunization strategies utilizing autologous DCs as APCs and patient tumor cells as a source of antigen.
       Theoretically, CTCL represents a perfect target for DC-based immunotherapy given its immunologic character,
       and the great need for effective therapies.

             University of California,
             San Francisco                         Hemangiomas of infancy are the most common tumors of childhood,
                                                   occurring in approximately 10% of infants. While most infants have a limited,
             benign clinical course, many others experience considerable disfigurement, and a minority of infants have life-threat-
             ening complications. Our study is the first prospective, multi-center, cohort study of patients with hemangiomas of

                                                      IN PSORIASIS PATIENTS
             University of Utah
                                                      The presence of obesity in psoriasis patients is common. The role of obesity in early
                                                      life on the natural history of disease, age of onset, severity of disease, progression of
             disease, and development of psoriatic arthritis in unknown. We predict the onset of obesity in early life may negatively im-
             pact psoriasis in adulthood. The goal of this study is to determine if obesity in early life predicts early onset of psoriasis
             and overall severity of disease. If this proves to be true, measures can be taken to reduce childhood and adolescent
             obesity, which may reduce risk of developing psoriasis. This research will also bring focus to the possibility of modi-
             fying existing psoriasis by treating underlying obesity.

             University of California,
             Los Angeles                            The majority of cutaneous bacterial infections in humans is due to
                                                    Staphylococcus aureus and Group A Streptococcus. This proposed study will
             investigate the role of Toll-like receptors (TLRs), particularly TLR2 in mediating immune responses and generation
             of antimicrobial peptides directed against these common bacterial skin infections. This study will broaden our un-
             derstanding of cutaneous host defense and may lead to much needed novel antibacterial therapies, thereby expand-
             ing our arsenal against these infections.

                                                      WOUND ON A PIG MODEL
             University of Miami
                                                    This study is going to enable us to better understand other means by which
                                                    biofilms can be eliminated. Enzymatic therapy can be a new therapeutic “gun”
             by which resistant bacteria can be tackled. This would be the first study in which in a controlled fashion enzymes
             are used to eliminate biofilms in partial thickness wounds. The results of this study can impact not only Dermatol-
             ogy, but many other fields in medicine.

                               Since its inception in 1994, the Annenberg Circle has grown steadily. At the close of 2002, its
                               membership reached 139 dermatologists and lay members, creating the Annenberg One Hun-
                               dred. The Trustees of the Dermatology Foundation are deeply appreciative of the generosity of
                               the individuals whose names appear below. Their extraordinary commitment helps ensure the
                               growth of the Foundation’s Research Awards Program and comes at a time when dermatolo-
                               gists continue to evolve as the specialists in providing expert treatment for diseases of the skin,
                               hair and nails.
                                   Up to $10,000 of accrued Leaders Society membership can be applied to Annenberg Circle
                               participation. In order to ensure continuity in future research funding, a major portion of
                               each Annenberg Circle contribution is transferred to the Foundation’s Research Endowment

              research. This must be certified in writing by the applicant’s chairman, and the institution must demonstrate a
              strong commitment to the recipient’s research career.

                                                    cyte proliferation, differentiation and death. We recently discovered an im-
              portant role for p38δ MAP kinase in regulating epidermal gene expression during differentiation. Our preliminary
              studies suggest that p38δ also functions as a positive modulator of apoptotic cell death program in keratinocytes.
              We will study the molecular mechanisms of p38δ-mediated apoptotic signaling in skin cells. Successful completion of
              proposed studies will increase understanding of mechanisms that regulate keratinocyte function.

                                                     cancer is well established. In addition, such HPVs are also involved in squa-
              mous cell carcinomas of the skin and oral mucosa. Since many of the tumors harbor multiple HPV types, and their
              contribution to the disease is unknown, studies will be performed with human cells to determine how infection
              with multiple HPVs alters viral replication and possibly affects the way they cause cancer.

              Medical Center                        the most formidable disease arising from skin. Understanding the molecular
              basis of drug resistance in malignant melanoma is essential to develop targeted therapy. The proposed study is to
              investigate the mechanism of a novel AAA-protein in preventing programmed cell death in melanoma cells and to
              develop this AAA-protein as a prognostic marker to predict patient response to therapy.

              in the immune response. Among them, a specialized cell, called Langerhans cell is critical in initiating the immune
              response. δT cells, a subpopulation of T cells are abundant in skin and may contribute to the immune responses.
              In addition, E. coli itself provides a strong adjuvant effect on the immune response.

          Children’s Memorial Hospital
                                               Lichen striatus and epidermal nevus are common “mosaic” skin disorders of
                                               children, presenting as patterned streaks of heaped-up skin. However, the
          epidemiology and underlying basis for these lesions are unclear. I plan to explore the epidemiology of these similar
          mosaic conditions, confirm that the cells of each lesion originate from the same ancestor cells, explore markers
          that may distinguish these two conditions, and investigate the cause of the disappearance of lichen striatus but not

                                                     Catheter-related infections (CRI) involving Candida albicans biofilms are caused
                                                     mainly through skin insertion sites and hubs. Adhesion to catheter surfaces is
              the precursor for biofilm formation. Recently we showed differential expression of an adhesion between biofilm and
              planktonic cells. This proposal is aimed at identifying candidal adhesion proteins involved in biofilm formation. Data
              obtained will give a clear answer whether adhesion proteins are critical to biofilm formation and may lead to better
              treatment of CRI.

                                                        Identifying the molecular mechanisms that initiate hair follicle development is
                                                        important for understanding this process and for developing strategies for hair
              follicle regeneration in cases of permanent loss. We find that WNT intercellular signaling molecules are necessary
              for the initiation of hair follicle development. My goal is to identify genes that become active in hair follicles in re-
              sponse to WNT signals so that we can begin to elucidate the mechanisms by which these signals operate.

                                                     transforming growth factors β (TGFβ), Smad7 in the skin accelerated wound
              healing, suggesting a potential therapeutic strategy for impaired wound healing. This proposal will study the
              stage-specific functions of Smad7 during wound healing and analyze the underlying molecular mechanisms. We
              will use genetically engineered mice that allow induction of Smad7 expression in the skin at different stages during
              wound healing.

                                                   the Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) warts are particularly long lasting
              and aggressive because these patients have a poor immune system and cannot attack the warts effectively. In the
              year 2002 there are many treatments for HIV that make the immune system able to fight off infections like healthy
              people. Unfortunately, patients on these potent medications still have very difficult, persistent warts. I am using
              tests that measure immunity to study this paradox.
