Matilda Wray Nicholas

Professor of Dermatology
234 Crooked Creek Parkway Ste 300, Durham, NC 27713


I have a wide array of research interests reflecting my many roles at Duke. I am interested in clinical trials and clinical pilot studies to better understand and treat inflammatory diseases of the skin. I am also interested in quality assurance and improvement studies to better care for our patients, our collogues and ourselves, as well as to target non evidence based overutilization of limited health care resources (such as unneeded lab monitoring). Finally, I am interested in alternative care delivery models, especially in measuring their quality and their impact on patients and physicians.
