Many congratulations to Thomas F. Anderson, MD, associate professor of dermatology, whose retirement will be effective, July 1, 2017.
Dr. Anderson joined the faculty of the University of Michigan Department of Dermatology in 1978. His expertise in the area of photo medicine has enhanced our education and clinical research missions and has advanced our clinical and patient care programs in the areas of psoriatic skin disease and cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.
He served a primary role in establishing and directing the U-M Dermatology Treatment Center (DTC), a highly successful treatment program for those afflicted with severe psoriasis disease. During the course of his faculty career, Dr. Anderson oversaw pioneering clinical research, which studied the effects of psoralen-photo chemotherapy treatment in those afflicted by severe psoriasis and in cutaneous lymphoma. He authored 25 book chapters and 65 peer-reviewed publications, and has served as co-chair of the Phototherapy Task Force for the United States Cutaneous Lymphoma Consortium.
Dr. Anderson has served in numerous leadership roles at the departmental, institutional and regional levels, including as director of the U-M Dermatology Treatment Center and Phototherapy Unit from 1987 to 2017 and leading the U-M Cutaneous Lymphoma Program from 1999 to 2017. As a clinical educator, he has providing instruction to future doctors in the lecture hall, conference and patient care setting, including thousands of medical students, and over 250 dermatology residents at the University of Michigan.
We wish Dr. Anderson much success in his retirement, and thank him for his many years of service.
