The Clinical Trials Unit also oversees the Tissue Acquisition Program of the Northwestern University Skin Disease Research Center. The Tissue Acquisition Program provides biospecimens without identifiers to qualified investigators for skin biology research purposes on the Northwestern campus, but also to outside academic institutions and industry companies.

The Clinical Trials Unit also supports two clinical research fellowships within the department, one for MD graduates and one for current medical students who have an interest in dermatology research.[Shorten text]
