The Dermatology Foundation, a non-profit organization, has been supporting
the future of dermatology since 1964 when a group of concerned dermatologists
founded it to support the career-development aspirations of the next generation
of researchers and educators throughout dermatology. It is second only to the
federal government as a source of funding for those pursuing careers in research
and teaching and raises contributions from members of the specialty and the
cosmetic, pharmaceutical and surgical industries. For a complete view of the
