Donald Glass, M.D., Ph.D.
Originally from the Bahamas, Dr. Glass enrolled in the Medical Scientist Training Program at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) in 1998. He received his PhD from BCM in 2005 from the Department of Human Genetics, where he studied the role of Canonical Wnt Signaling in Bone Regulation. He received his MD from BCM in 2006, and did his transitional year internship at Cambridge Hospital in Massachusetts in 2008. He was the second African-American resident to train in the Department of Dermatology at UT Southwestern Medical Center, completing his residency in 2011. He is currently an Instructor in the Department of Dermatology at UT Southwestern.
Dr. Glass spends the majority of his time doing research. His main interest is in studying keloids (exuberant scarring of the skin), how they occur and in finding the genes that predispose people to develop keloids. Being African-American, Dr. Glass has an interest in studying diseases that affect skin of color. Keloids occur disproportionately more often in skin of color, and the ability to develop keloids can be inherited within families. Dr. Glass is compiling a registry of individuals as well as families affected by keloids in order to collect samples and information to study keloids further. His other research interest is identifying genes that cause rare skin disorders. Dr. Glass also sees patients in his clinic - besides keloids, his clinical interests include genetic skin diseases and granuloma annulare.
