Dr Solomon is an active member of ADEN (American DermatoEpidemiology Network www.adenet.us) an the AAD DermepiERG. Through ADEN, he is coordinating an effort to organize internationally all parties interested in dermatological research for the purpose of unifying outcome assessment measures and protocols. This not only includes clinical and basic academic scientists, but also patient advocacy groups, IRBs, CROs, evidence based researchers , pharmaceutical and device manufacturers, and others (DECTRC) . The current project to unify internationally outcome assessment measures is pSOAR (Psoriasis Outcome Assessment Review) which is a international non-biased group interested in fixing discrepancies in PASI and IGA whose members include academic and non-academic psoriasis investigators , patient advocacy groups, international research cooperatives, evidence based researchers, IRBs, CROs, as well as pharmaceutical and device manufacturers. Currently, an effort is underway for ADEN and the DermEpiERG to coordinate this process through both the AAD and the SID.
Dr Solomon also has an expertise in complex adaptive systems research methodology. In his clinical practice through ADCS, Dr Solomon not only sees routine medical and cosmetic dermatological patients of all ages but also evaluates and manages patients with complex dermatological disorders often with multi-organ system involvement which fail to respond to standard treatment modalities. Dr Solomon combines medical and cosmetic (non-covered) procedures and treatments to reverse the skin changes including scarring resulting from acne, rosacea, sun damage, surgery procedures, and pregnancy.
Dr Solomon actively publishes the results of his efforts. In addition, he is an editor of Cutaneous Oncology Today and a reviewer for the JAAD.
