Roslyn Rivkah Isseroff, M.D. received her undergraduate degree in Biology from the City University of New York, Brooklyn College, followed by a doctorate in medicine at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Dr. Isseroff was both a resident and postdoctoral fellow at the New York University Medical Center. Soon after, she became an Assistant Professor of Dermatology and Cell Biology at the same institution before being named Assistant Professor at the University of California-Davis, Department of Dermatology, where she is now Full Professor. Dr. Isseroff was named the Chief of Service of Dermatology for the VA Northern California Healthcare System; she also heads the Wound Healing clinic there.

In her time at the University of California-Davis, Dr. Isseroff has been a member or chair of multiple University-related committees as well as several professional societies such as the Society of Investigative Dermatology, American Dermatology Association, American Society for Cell Biology, and NIH Study section. She is also currently an associate editor for the Journal of Investigative Dermatology. Dr. Isseroff’s honors and awards include the NIH Research Career Development Award, the UC Davis Dean’s Award for Mentoring, several R01 NIH grants, and patents. Her research interests revolve around tissue repair and regeneration.
