Dr.  Nick Reynolds will deliver the Eugene Farber Lecture during the 77th Annual Meeting of the Society for Investigative Dermatology (SID) on May 10, 2019 at 2:00 pm at the Hilton Chicago, International Ballroom North. His lecture is titled Towards Precision Therapeutics: A Systems Approach to Understanding Psoriasis Plaque Resolution and Endotype Analysis.


Nick Reynolds, MD is Professor of Dermatology and Director of the MRC/EPSRC Molecular Pathology Node at Newcastle University (UK), where he also leads a multi-disciplinary psoriasis service for patients with severe disease. 


Dr. Reynolds’ current research is focused on the mechanism of action of therapeutic agents in psoriasis and atopic eczema, human models of skin disease, systems biology and precision medicine.  His group published one of the first personalized medicine studies in Dermatology – a randomized controlled trial of azathioprine in atopic eczema that utilized pharmacogenetic-based dosimetry (Lancet). His interdisciplinary and computer modelling studies of UVB phototherapy in psoriasis identified apoptosis as a biomarker of response and as a key mechanism involved in plaque remodeling. He has been a member of BADBIR’s (British Association of Dermatologists Biologics Intervention Register) Steering Committee since its inception and has chaired the Research Committee since 2009. As work-strand lead in a multi-center stratified medicine program – PSORT (Psoriasis Stratification to Optimise Relevant Therapy), he has contributed particularly to transcriptomic and systems analyses as well as working closely with patient groups. In 2016 he was appointed Director of Newcastle’s MRC/EPSRC Molecular Pathology Node, one of six units established in the UK to bring researchers, clinicians and industry together to develop molecular diagnostic tools for personalized medicine.


He was the inaugural Chair of UK TREND (Translational Research Network in Dermatology) and is Past President of the European Society for Dermatological Research (ESDR).  


In 2007, the SID Board of Directors voted to create the Eugene M. Farber Endowed Lecture as a result of The Eugene M. Farber endowment, which was established by the family of Eugene M. Farber, MD, who devoted his scientific career to understanding the pathogenesis of psoriasis. The lecture is presented each year at the Society’s Annual Meeting by an investigator whose work is relevant to expanding our insights into the pathophysiology and treatment of psoriasis.


If you are attending SID, consider attending the International Psoriasis Council's scientific symposium, "Cardiovascular disease in psoriasis: A changing paradigm" on Wednesday, May 8th from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm.
