Dr. Prince Adotama decided to become a dermatologist because of the need for doctors who specialize in managing skin and hair conditions that affect people who have black and brown skin. He is a co-founder of NYU Langone's Skin of Color Program, which offers personalized, evidence-based treatment for conditions affecting people with black and brown skin. Dr. Adotama's research is focused on health disparities and the diagnosis and treatment of hair disorders. He is investigating new ways to diagnose and manage scarring alopecia, which can lead to permanent hair loss and alternative treatments for immunobullous disorders.
Dr. Adotama has been included in Allure magazine's "Best Black Dermatologists" list. In addition, he is a member of the Skin of Color Society and the American Academy of Dermatology.
