He received a BS in Chemical Engineering from Cornell University, and a PhD in Physics and MD from Washington University in Saint Louis. He completed a Pediatrics internship at Saint Louis Children’s Hospital, Dermatology residency at Barnes Jewish Hospital in Saint Louis, and Pediatrics Dermatology fellowship at Washington University in Saint Louis.
Dr. Shmuylovich’s clinical interests are in complex vascular malformations of children, and he ran the multidisciplinary Vascular Anomalies Clinic at Washington University in Saint Louis. He is also interested in inflammatory skin diseases at the intersection of dermatology and rheumatology, particularly fibrosing disorders. His research lab is focused on extracting clinically meaningful information from the infrared spectrum that extends beyond the visible range. Specifically, they intend to develop technologies that leverage the infrared spectrum to more objectively visualize and measure skin disease at both the macro and micro scale across diverse skin types in both adult and pediatric patients. Dr. Shmuylovich’s research interests are pediatric dermatology, vascular malformations, short-wave infrared and thermal imaging.
