Young Investigator Award
Congratulations to Dr Christos Tziotzios, a consultant dermatologist at Guy’s and St Thomas’, who has been given The Young Investigator Award from the British Skin Foundation.
Dr Tziotzios, who is also honorary clinical senior lecturer at St John’s Institute of Dermatology, was recognised for his work on frontal fibrosing alopecia (FFA). FFA is a condition that causes hair loss, mainly over the hairline at the front of your head.
Dr Tziotzios says: “Increasing our understanding of the genetic basis of the condition may enable us to devise genetic risk scoring tools, which may allow us to predict who might be at risk of developing the condition.”
