It’s Time to Invest in the Future of Dermatology!

The research supported by CDF is giving dermatologists the tools they need to relieve suffering and change lives forever. We back dermatology-focused educational and scientific activities with the potential to grow basic and applied dermatology research in Canada.

The CDF has invested over $7 million in dermatologic research in Canada (2017)

Established in 1969, the Canadian Dermatology Foundation (CDF) sets out to advance dermatology through original research. The CDF is the only national not-for-profit funder of basic and applied dermatological research in Canada.

We’ve come so far, but people are still suffering from skin conditions that have no clear path to relief. Promising research initiatives are poised to provide the answers that could finally bring them the help they’ve been looking for.

CDF corporate partners are the backbone of Foundation research funding. There is a direct line from each of their contributions to a research project named in their honour. Every year their investments have relevance, breadth and potential impact on improving care for patients with skin, hair or nail disease.
