Dr. Scumpia is an Associate Professor of Medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and a clinical dermatologist and dermatopathologist at UCLA and the West LA VAMC. He is a member of the I3T Theme, the Jonnson Comprehensive Cancer Center, and the Molecular Biology Institute at UCLA. Dr. Scumpia graduated from the University of Florida College of Medicine with his M.D and completed his PhD from the University of Florida in Microbiology and Immunology. He completed residency training in Dermatology followed by Dermatopathology fellowship training at UCLA. Dr. Scumpia completed post doctoral training in the STAR program at UCLA with Stephen Smale. The Scumpia Lab investigates how the cutaneous immune system affects wound healing and/or scarring, infection, and skin cancer. A major focus is to develop immunomodulatory biomaterials for wound healing, cutaneous regeneration, vaccines, and cancer immunotherapies. Dr. Scumpia was a recipient of a Dermatology Foundation Career Development Award and an NIH K Award. The Scumpia Lab is currently funded by grants from the NIH (NIAMS R01), LEO Foundation, American Cancer Society, and VA (Merit awards).
