Jennifer G. Gill, M.D., Ph.D., is an Instructor in the Department of Dermatology at UT Southwestern Medical Center. Her clinical specialties include treating melanoma and dermatologic complications of cancer, such as cutaneous metastases and chemotherapy-related rashes.
Dr. Gill earned her medical and doctoral degrees in immunology through the Medical Scientist Training Program at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. She completed a dermatology residency – including both clinical and research experience – at UT Southwestern and an internal medicine internship at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas.
She currently performs research at Children’s Medical Center Research Institute at UT Southwestern, where she is working to identify the molecular mechanisms behind melanoma metastasis and distant organ tropism. She also holds a Bachelor of Science degree in cellular biology from the University of Georgia.
Dr. Gill’s research interests include targeted cancer therapies and metastasis of melanoma and other cancers. She has published a number of journal articles and contributed to the third edition of Comprehensive Dermatologic Drug Therapy.
Her professional activities also include serving as a peer reviewer for the American Academy of Dermatology and as the Basic Science editor for the Academy’s Board Preparation Question Bank.
Among her many honors, Dr. Gill received the American Academy of Dermatology’s 2018 Presidential Citation Award and the Dermatology Foundation’s 2017 Career Development Award. She is also a prior recipient of the prestigious Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship, an award created by the U.S. Congress for young scientists with exceptional potential.
Certified by the American Board of Dermatology, Dr. Gill is a member of professional organizations that include the American Academy of Dermatology and the Society for Investigative Dermatology, on whose board of directors she also serves.
She joined the UT Southwestern faculty in 2016.
