Kudos to Dr. Mark Ramirez

Dr. Ramirez has published an original research study entitled, "Topical Imiquimod as an Adjuvant to Laser Removal of Mature Tattoos in an Animal Model," in the March 2007 issue of the peer-reviewed journal, Dermatologic Surgery (Dermatol Surg 2007;33:319-325). He performed the research during his participation in the UTMB Honors Research Program in Dermatology, that earned him Summa Cum Laude graduation honors in 2004. That year he also received the annual departmental Thomas W. Freese Award for the best overall senior medical student in dermatology at graduation. Dr. Ramirez is currently a 2nd year dermatology resident at UTMB. His co-authors on the study were Norma Magee, Dayna Diven, Maria Colome-Grimmer, Massoud Motamedi, Gisele Oliveira, Jesus Zamora, Tatsuo Uchida and Richard Wagner.
