Twin Study Awarded New NRS Grant

The National Rosacea Society announced that it has awarded funding for an additional study as part of its research grants program.

Dr. Daniel Popkin, assistant professor of dermatology at Case Western Reserve University, and colleagues were awarded $25,000 to study the facial microbiomes – the unique community of microorganisms that resides in all individuals – of identical twins in whom only one has rosacea. In earlier work, the researchers studied the contribution of genetics versus the environment in identical and fraternal twins. They noted that studying rosacea in identical twins makes it easier to discover how specific factors affect its development without being potentially misled by the many genetic elements.

The information the Society provides should not be considered medical advice, nor is it intended to replace

consultation with a qualified physician. The Society does not evaluate, endorse or recommend any particular medications, products, equipment or treatments. Rosacea may vary substantially from one patient to another, and treatment must be tailored by a physician for each individual case. For more information, visit About Us.
