The William J. Cunliffe Scientific Awards

The William J. Cunliffe Scientific Awards aim to recognize and encourage innovative and outstanding research in the areas of Endocrine Dermatology and Skin Pharmacology conferring great benefit upon understanding the function of the pilosebaceous unit as well as the pathophysiology and treatment of its diseases.

Through their work, William J. Cunliffe laureates have to focus by their discoveries worldwide attention on

  • the significance of skin, and especially of the pilosebaceous unit, as hormone target and endocrine organ, and
  • the development of new molecules to target skin diseases as well as the understanding of the molecular action of therapeutic compounds.

The awards endowed by a gift from Galderma and administered by the Department of Dermatology, Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Campus Benjamin Franklin were established in 2001 in honor of the lifetime scientific work of Prof. emer. William J. Cunliffe, MD.
