Dr. Mark Ling, who previously directed the clinical research program at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, established MedaPhase in 1998. Dr. Ling founded MedaPhase with a mission to bring university-quality clinical dermatology research to the south metro Atlanta area where no such opportunities previously existed. It is Dr. Ling’s belief that clinical research provides a unique opportunity to advance the frontiers of dermatology therapy.
MedaPhase is located with Newnan Dermatology in a state-of-the-art facility, which opened in 2005. It is easily accessible from anywhere in the metro Atlanta area, as well as the surrounding communities of LaGrange, Columbus, and Covington.
