CONTINUED ON PAGE 9 WINTER 2007 9 Department Spotlight A NOTE FROM DEE ANNA GLASER, M.D. DIRECTOR, DIVISION OF COSMETIC AND LASER SURGERY When I look back at the origin of academic cosmetic dermatology at Saint Louis University and reﬂect upon how it has grown since 1993, I am truly amazed and proud of what we have accom- plished. With the support of the University, faculty, residents, fellows, staff, and others, we have developed a dynamic, productive division in terms of patient care, research, and scholarly publica- tion. Dermatology residents, Mohs and cosmetic fellows, clinical research fellows, residents from other Saint Louis University specialties, SLU medical students, and students from other programs train in the cosmetic and laser division at both our SLUCare Des Peres and Anheuser-Busch Institute sites. They have the opportunity to participate in patient care and research involving the latest advancements in laser technology, ﬁllers, botulinum toxin-A therapies, a variety of skin rejuvenating and restorative procedures, and cosmetic and dermatologic surgery. In the fall of 2006, we welcomed Natalie L. Semchyshyn, M.D., Assistant Professor in the Division of Cosmetic and Laser Surgery, who shares her talents and expertise to continue the growth and development of our division and department. n Natalie L.

Much like our pride in being part of Saint Louis University, we wanted to strengthen camaraderie and rally team spirit for dermatology as a department. The public recognizes the SLU symbol as one of excellence; we want ours to inter- nally reinforce this idea within our department. Paul Bowman, M.D., our ﬁrst Mohs fellow in 2003 with our chairman, Scott W. Fosko, M.D., was inspired to design this patch during his fellowship. We are grateful to his creative genius in designing the patch that has become the symbol for our department.
