Robert S. Dawe
Robert S. Dawe was born in Tanzania and brought up there, and in Malawi, before finishing school education in Scotland and then attending Glasgow University Medical School. He graduated in medicine in 1989, and, after basic general (internal) medicine, started training in dermatology in 1993. He was appointed as a Consultant Dermatologist and an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Dundee in 2004 after completing higher specialist training as a dermatologist. His research thesis (M.D. degree) was on phototherapy-related topics. He works at the Scottish National Health Service and is based in Ninewells Hospital, Dundee, where the Scottish National Photobiology Unit and the Local Dermatology Inpatient Ward for Tayside and North-East Fife are based. Mostly, his clinical work is in general dermatology (with general clinics in peripheral community hospitals as well as clinics in Dundee), but he does specialist clinics in porphyrias, phototherapy, chronic urticaria, and a dermatological surgery list. His research interests have mainly concentrated on clinical trials in phototherapy and epidemiology related to phototherapy and the photodermatoses (idiopathic and the porphyrias).
