Emma Guttman-Yassky

Emma Guttman-Yassky, MD, PhD is the system chair of the department of dermatology, and the Waldman Professor of Dermatology and Immunology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York. She is the Director of the Center of Excellence in Eczema and the Laboratory for Inflammatory Skin Diseases. She earned her M.D. from Sackler School of Medicine at the Tel-Aviv University, and a Ph.D. degree from the Bar-Ilan University, Israel. After her Israeli Board certification in dermatology in Israel, Dr. Guttman moved to the U.S. to pursue a two-year postdoctoral fellowship at The Rockefeller University in the Laboratory for Investigative Dermatology. Upon completion of her fellowship, she became board-certified by the American Board of dermatology after a second dermatology residency training at Weill- Cornell Medical College, in NY.

Dr. Guttman’s major research focus areas are atopic dermatitis (AD)/eczema and alopecia areata. Her research made paradigm-shifting discoveries on the immunologic basis of AD/eczema in adults and children with atopic dermatitis, enriching the understanding of the pathophysiology of this common disorder, opening the door for novel, pathway-specific drugs in this disease. Recently, Dr. Guttman extended her research interest to hair loss disorders such as alopecia areata and scarring hair loss disorders, chronic hand eczema, keloids, ichtyosis, and other skin diseases, in which her findings are also translated to novel therapeutics.

Dr. Guttman co-founded the International Eczema Council (IEC), and is its immediate past president. Dr. Guttman received many national and international awards (e.g the AAAAI Award for Scientific Innovation and for pioneering discoveries, AAD Young Investigator award, etc). She was elected as a member to the American Society for Clinical Investigation/ASCI, and the American Dermatological Society/ADA. Dr. Guttman is often a keynote and plenary speaker in international and national meetings, and authored over 275 peer-reviewed publications.
