About Dr. Boin:


r. Boin received his M.D. from the University of Padova Medical School, Italy. He completed his internship and residency in internal medicine at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota and a post-doctoral fellowship in clinical and experimental rheumatology at Johns Hopkins University.

Dr. Boin is interested in Translational Research: studies that apply basic research technology directly to study patients’ clinical disease. His research focuses on the cellular biology of immune cells and the mechanisms of autoimmunity in scleroderma. His goal is to identify reliable laboratory tools that can help investigate the causes of scleroderma, effectively measure disease activity, monitor treatments and help predict clinical outcomes in scleroderma patients.

Dr. Boin is also interested in other immune-mediated fibrosing skin disorders and with particular focus on a condition called eosinophilic fasciitis.
