MS1 here thinking about my future career.

I have done two research projects so far: one in computational biochem/drug discovery, and one in tissue engineering/stem cell bio. Both areas are very interesting to me and I am thinking about an academic career, so I want to pick a specialty that lets me explore one of them (and maybe take a research year since I am not MD/PhD). Since I know how these fields relate to surgical specialties (nsx, ortho, etc) I was wondering how they might be relevant to dermatological research, as derm is another field I am interested in.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on these matters. If possible, could someone point me in the right direction to learn more? I have trouble finding things doing advanced pubmed searches but I'll do that if its the best way to learn. Thanks!

I don't have much experience with either project you mention but I am sure there are derm researchers doing something that overlaps with those projects.

You already hit on the best way to learn more. I would run a pubmed search on the topic of your choice. I would read as many articles as you can. Once you start seeing the same researcher or the same lab over and over again, I would reach out and see if they can accommodate your interest. Good luck!
