Since 1996 the Department of Dermatology has done research within the area of epidemiology primarily investigating prevalence and causes of atopic dermatitis. Collaboration with the Department of Clinical Epidemiology has led to studies concerning non-melanoma skin cancer, scleroderma and cancer diseases. The studies have been performed using public health registries and involve patients from our department in corporation with relevant partners.

Further, we have for several years worked on innovation of a new qualitative database prospectively evaluating the quality of treatments of non-melanoma skin cancer in  private dermatology practise  and the database has successfully been implemented in most of the Danish private dermatology  practises.
