Welcome to the website of Jonathan Rees

I am a clinical academic based at the University of Edinburgh, where I hold the Grant Chair of Dermatology. I have researched  in many areas during  my career including skin cancer genetics, the response of skin to UVR, and most notably, the identification of the gene for red hair and sun sensitivity (and hence the evolution of human pigmentation). Over the last 10 years  my research on automated and semi-automated methods of skin cancer diagnosis has led to an interest in how we teach — and hence how students learn — and how we can use technology to improve and change the way we educate doctors.

  • Man has only one means of discovery and that is to find likenesses between things (Jacob Bronowski)
  • The dermatologist is a visual libertine seduced daily by the beauty of a rash (Sam Shuster)
  • The images should take the place of the patients and the text should take the place of the teacher (von Hebra)
  • “Explain, explain,” grumbled Étienne. “If you people can’t name something you’re incapable of seeing it.”— (Cortázar, 1966, Hopscotch)
