Roslyn Rivkah Isseroff, M.D.
In addition to general dermatology, Dr. Isseroff has a strong clinical interest in wound care. She is currently the director of the ulcer clinic at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Mather. Her research interests include keratinocyte differentiation, migration and wound healing, signal transduction, bioengineered tissue replacement, and toxicology of the skin. Current research projects focus on analysis of cell responses to an applied electric field, bioengineered skin grafts, and enhancers of would healing.
