Arash Mostaghimi MD MPA MPH

Principal Investigator

I am an assistant professor of dermatology, director of the inpatient dermatology consult service, and co-director of the  Complex Medical Dermatology Fellowship at  Brigham & Women’s Hospital. As a board-certified internist and dermatologist, I am a practicing physician who specializes in the dermatologic care of patients who are in the hospital and outpatients with complex dermatology disorders. For clinical inquiries, please contact our outpatient clinic at (617) 732-4918.

In addition to my clinical research, which you can learn about on this website, I am an advisor to several companies who are seeking to provide dermatologic care using novel technologies or innovative models of care delivery. I’m also an associate editor at JAMA Dermatology.

My  daughter has alopecia areata, and a portion of my research is focused on understanding the  epidemiology and  clinical impact of this disease.  In addition I am involved in clinical trials focused on bringing  innovative therapies for alopecia areata to patients who need them the most.
