Dr. Emma Guttman-Yassky's Research
Dr. Guttman-Yassky’s groundbreaking research focuses on eczema, atopic, and contact dermatitis. Her research has important implications in advancing the current molecular knowledge on these diseases.
Dr. Guttman-Yassky develops biomarkers of atopic dermatitis that could be used for future studies with targeted therapeutics. She also concentrates on unraveling the primary pathogenesis of this common disease.
The newest research efforts by Dr. Guttman-Yassky and her team aim to do the same for alopecia areata that they have done for eczema. Following this same process, they explore new targets that will enable them to identify new treatments for patients who suffer from hair loss.
Dr. Guttman-Yassky has a very high h-index of 83. The h-index is a scholarly measurement of the productivity and impact of a physician scientist’s publications.
An h-index of 83 means that the Dr. Guttman-Yassky has published at least 83 papers that have each been cited at least 83 times.
Her research has led to numerous (>250) publications in leading dermatology, allergy, medicine, and immunology journals (including the New England Journal of Medicine, Nature Immunology, Journal of Allergy Clinical Immunology, Journal of Investigative Dermatology, Journal of Immunology, Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, and JAMA Dermatology). Many of these key publications have been selected as the Editor’s Choice in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.
