Dr. Ron Vender


During his 23-year career, Dr. Ron Vender has become a renowned dermatologist in the field of psoriasis. He is currently an Associate Clinical Professor at McMaster University, in the Department of Medicine, Division of Dermatology. He is based in Hamilton, ON.

Dr. Vender has participated as a principal investigator in over 50 clinical trials in psoriasis, driven by the need for innovative therapies. “Newer therapies have allowed individuals with psoriasis to attain the target they want to achieve, which is being almost clear of symptoms,” he says.

In addition to his role in academia, Dr. Vender is also one of the only eight Canadians elected to the International Psoriasis Council. He is also a member of the Canadian Professors of Dermatology and the Group for Research and Assessment of Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis. A keen observer and contributor to the latest research developments in the psoriatic community, he is a part of the editorial board of the Journal of Cutaneous Medicine and Surgery and the Journal of Clinical & Experimental Dermatology.

Despite his many professional positions, his primary focus remains on relieving the difficulties of living with psoriasis.
