Dr. Mark Lomaga is a Canadian board-certified Dermatologist and is the founder of DermEdge. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology. Dr. Lomaga completed his Bachelors degree in Pharmacy (top Honours standing) at the University of Toronto in 1996 giving him a solid foundation in therapeutics.
Under the supervision of Dr. Tak Mak, and in collaboration with scientists at Amgen, he then proceeded to complete a Doctor of Philosophy degree in 2000 at the Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto. This doctoral work led to highly-cited publications elucidating the role of TRAF-6, a key protein which mediates signaling from the TNF receptor superfamily. In 2004, he obtained his Doctor of Medicine degree along with numerous prestigious awards and scholarships for academic excellence and exemplary patient care. In the same year, he began his Dermatology Residency training at the University of Toronto, where in 2008, he was selected by the residency program to serve as Co-Chief Resident for the year.
Having obtained his certification from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and the American Board of Dermatology in 2009, Dr. Lomaga was recruited as a faculty member in the Division of Dermatology at Women’s College Hospital, where he taught medical students and dermatology residents within the university.
Dr. Lomaga then founded DermEdge in 2012. This full service dermatology clinic specializes in general medical and cosmetic/aesthetic dermatology. What sets them apart is Dr. Lomaga’s passion to bring the “bench-to-bedside”. As a physician and scientist, Dr. Lomaga serves as principal investigator in a variety of clinical trials with the ultimate goal of advancing cutting edge treatments in patients failing conventional therapies.
