Bernard “Buddy” Cohen, a native of Baltimore, Md., received his medical degree from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 1977. He completed a residency in pediatrics at Johns Hopkins, followed by a year as chief resident in pediatrics at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore, Md. He completed an additional residency and chief residency in dermatology at Johns Hopkins.
An expert on the use of cutaneous laser surgery, Cohen is researching the best and newest treatments for the most prevalent skin conditions afflicting children.
At Johns Hopkins, he and his colleagues are developing multi-center studies of ringworm in the scalp; head lice; eczema; wart therapies; and new topical anesthetics, in use but currently studied only in adults. To facilitate the studies, a full-time nurse practitioner helps establish research protocols in collaborative trials supported by pharmaceutical companies.
Cohen’s research interests include hemangiomas and vascular malformations; infections and infestations; and pediatric pharmacotherapeutics.
