If You’re A Doctor, You Can Help

Dear fellow Doctor, Please allow me to introduce myself. I am Dr. Wallace and I have practiced dermatology since 1992. In 1993 I founded Wallace of Beverly Hills™, the branded aesthetic component of my practice, and in 1997 I initiated a clinical study division, today both of which are significant components of Wallace Skin Research Center. A native of Los Angeles, I attended UC Berkeley, Harvard Medical School, the University of Missouri-Kansas City and Oklahoma University. My internship, in General Surgery, graduate training in Dermatology and a fellowship in Reconstructive and Plastic Surgery were at the Charles Drew/M. L. King, Jr. Medical Center in Los Angeles. For the past 20 years I have been a member of the teaching staff at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. In 2012 I served as the National Psoriasis Foundation Honorary Medical Chairman and I currently serve as the Congressional spokesman for the Foundation. Specifically, I am seeking participants for upcoming clinical trials for various skin conditions. The following are salient factors related to the trials.

“I am seeking your assistance by asking you to refer potential participants (patients) to participate in clinical studies. As you know participants are critical to help improve treatments today—and aid in the possible discovery of disease cures tomorrow.”

– Paul Wallace, M.D., M.P.A. –

Our Mission

More than a billion people worldwide suffer from one or more skin conditions, approximately 210 million people suffer from psoriasis (10 million in the U.S.). Unfortunately, in many cases there is no cure treatment. However, controlling the symptoms and appearance are a direct result of clinical trial studies. Since 1997 the Clinical Studies Division of the Wallace Skin Research Center has been engaged in its mission to find safe and effective treatments, and sometimes cures. Wallace Skin Research Center has distinguished itself as a leader in dermatological clinical research studies in Southern California. We are proud to be one of the leading centers, specializing in bringing diversity to clinical studies. A high number of our participants are people of color, including persons of Asian, Black, Latino, and Middle Eastern descent. To achieve our mission, we rapidly pair study sponsors with prospective patients. Once selected, study participants play a key role in helping to develop new and effective treatments, appropriate dosing, and technology to inhibit, alleviate, and possibly eradicate psoriasis and other skin conditions that have plagued mankind for centuries.

We Develop New Treatments That Improve And Save Lives.
