A clinical trial is a health-related research study in human beings that follows a pre-defined protocol. Carefully conducted clinical trials are the safest and most efficient way to identify treatments that work in people. Dr. Tanghetti has a passion for clinical research which he has honed over the past 20 years, as an investigator focusing both on drugs and devices. His research interests have focused on laser surgery, psoriasis, actinic keratosis, photo-aging, rosacea, atopic dermatitis and acne vulgaris.

There are several benefits to participating in a clinical trial. Participants have the opportunity to play an active role in their own health care, gain access to new investigational treatments before they are made widely available, and help others by contributing to the advancement of medical science through research. Our center is dedicated to the safety of our subjects and the welfare of participants in clinical trials is carefully protected by  Institutional Review Boards (IRB) which reviews all aspects of a clinical trial both before the investigator is able to enroll participants and throughout the trial. The following is a list of studies we are currently recruiting for:
