Dan Kern

Acne.org Founder & Chief Scientific Officer
Dan founded Acne.org in 1996 after a long struggle with acne. He has been researching acne since that time, distilling down all of the available science for the past 23 years in order to bring the truth to the surface on each and every topic related to acne. He is considered by many to be the world's leading expert in acne.
Our team of MDs and PhDs

Combing through every piece of information ever published on acne is no small task, and this is where our devoted team of MDs and PhDs (biology, microbiology, and chemistry) come in. Many MDs and PhDs apply to work on this team, but very few are chosen. Nothing less than a relentless pursuit of fully-referenced truth is allowed when it comes to research at Acne.org, and we never cut corners.

Our team of medical writers and illustrators

We also work with professional medical writers and illustrators. Their job is to help relay the complex research provided by our MDs and PhDs in a digestible way. Ultimately, Dan edits every article and works closely with our medical illustrators to ensure that every word of every article as well as each graphic is scientifically reliable.
