A local dermatologist was recently honoured with an international medical award at a conference in Warsaw, Poland.
Dr. Wayne Gulliver, a professor of Medicine and Dermatology at Memorial University, was presented the Albert Neisser Lectureship, becoming the first Canadian to receive the award.
The Lectureship is presented to dermatologists who make outstanding contributions to their field. The award is named after Dr. Albert Neisser, whose accomplishments include the discovery of the pathogen of leprosy.
Dr. Gulliver was recognized for his research and work on treatments for a rare and long-term skin condition known as hidradenitis suppurativa. He’s been in practice for close to 30 years, has supervised over 250 clinical trials, and has more than 100 published papers.
