Over the past 40 years, TDA has grown into a large organization with more than 1,000 members. The members include dermatologists from the medical center, government, university and private practice, and researchers in basic dermatological science. The members of TDA are actively involved in international collaborative research projects including studies on cutaneous drug hypersensitivity, psoriasis, vitiligo and arsenic poisoning. With quite a number of internationally renowned speakers in basic research, drug adverse reaction, cosmetic laser, injectable, and skin surgery, TDA plays a leading role in the development of dermatology science and aesthetic medicine across Asia. TDA published the first issue of Dermatologica Sinica in 1983, which started as a quarterly journal and is now a bimonthly publication.
