Master of Dermatology (Maruho)

Maruho established this prize in 2010 to recognize dermatologists who have made outstanding achievements in clinical dermatology and contributed to the development of the field of clinical dermatology in Japan. From 2017, the prize was renamed “Master of Dermatology (Maruho)” and jointly operated with the Japanese Dermatological Association. The Japanese Dermatological Association receives applications for the prize. Candidates are selected by the Association’s selection committee based on the criteria of people who have made a great contribution to the development of dermatology in Japan through clinical, dermatological research, human resources development, social contributions, etc. The prize winner will be selected at the Association’s executive board meeting and is planned to be announced at an award ceremony and lecture at the Annual Meeting of the Japanese Dermatological Association.
