Dr. Drucker is a dermatologist and researcher focusing on the epidemiology of skin diseases. Dr. Drucker studies the risks, related conditions and burden of disease of atopic dermatitis (commonly called eczema), a chronic skin disease that greatly impacts quality of life. Dr. Drucker leverages Big Data in the form of large cohort studies to answer important questions related to atopic dermatitis on a population level. His work on atopic dermatitis has been supported by grants from the National Eczema Association, Eczema Society of Canada and the Dermatology Foundation.

Dr. Drucker is also focused on evidence-based dermatology, synthesizing evidence across different studies to help inform day-to-day treatment decisions faced by clinicians and patients with skin disease. This includes work funded by the U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) that resulted in a comprehensive review of all treatment options for basal and squamous cell skin cancers, the two most common cancers worldwide.
