@dedeemurrell is passionate about history and culture, expressed through her love of travel and heritage. Her clinical trials centre is in the converted Presbyterian church of Kogarah, Sydney, which preserved stunning stained glass windows and wooden high ceilings. She and her husband spent the last 6 years restoring and adapting a historic home in Sydney which received multiple awards. ⁠ ⁠ Dr. Murrell shares her passion for history and travel with her family, seen here celebrating her mother’s 80th birthday at the Taj Falaknuma Palace in Hyderabad, India. The Nizam of Hyderabad was richer than the King of England and during WW2 when Dr. Murrell’s maternal grandfather was stationed at the palace with the Royal Engineers in Secunderabad. Her grandfather sent home beautiful sketches so it was a dream for her family to visit it one day.⁠ ⁠ Two of Dedee’s favourite countries she has visited are Iran and Turkey. WDS International Volunteer Awardee, Dr. Luitgard Wiest, encouraged her to visit Iran where she found talented and welcoming dermatologists, people, and patients with pemphigus and epidermolysis bullosa, her special interests. She loves the layers of historical sites and fostering understanding through her world travels.⁠
In 2011, whilst @dedeemurrell was on the Executive of the International Society of Dermatology she wrote an article for the International Journal of Dermatology on the role of women in Dermatology with founding WDS President, Wilma Bergfeld.⁠ ⁠ Dedee had an idea that it would be great for the WDS to have its own journal. Appointed as the first international board member of the WDS in 2012, she proposed the creation of an International WDS journal. Like-minded board member, Jane Grant-Kels, was also keen. In 2013, they recruited Elsevier as the publisher for the newly named International Journal of Women’s Dermatology, IJWD. They recruited an international editorial board and the first quarterly edition was published in 2014. By the end of 2016 the IJWD had 8 issues published with high quality peer reviewed papers related to skin diseases in women and career/work-life balance issues and it was listed on PubMed in 2017.⁠ ⁠ Now, Dedee continues serving as co-editor with Jenny Murase and there are new sections on Women’s Health Highlight and the Art of Prevention. The IJWD has had several special issues published, such as the Self Esteem and Surgical Issues. With thousands of clicks every week on its popular open access articles, the IJWD continues to grow in impact.⁠
Anyone who has met @dedeemurrell knows that she is passionate about international exchange amongst dermatologists. Raised and educated in Medicine in England, Dedee had the opportunity to travel within Europe prior to her Dermatology residency in the USA.⁠ Dedee always made friends with international students attending Oxford and Cambridge during her degrees, as well as during her Dermatology residency at UNC Chapel Hill.⁠ ⁠ Married to an Australian Rhodes Scholar she met at Oxford, she followed his orthopaedic surgical residency to Duke and fellowship at the Hospital for Special Surgery, New York. When they moved to Sydney she began an international Dermatology fellowship and mentorship program which has seen over 100 international mentees in her department.⁠ ⁠ Dedee lectures each year at the AAD and EADV. She also teaches and see patients with Epidermolysis Bullosa and autoimmune blistering diseases in countries where it is more difficult for dermatologists to afford international travel to conferences.⁠
Join us today at 10am, 12pm, and 2pm CST to learn more about #womensderm active member @DedeeMurrell, MA, BMBCh, FAAD, MD, FRCP, FACD.⁠ ⁠ During Medical School at Oxford the only specialty with more than one female consultant was Dermatology. Female role models are extremely important to young women, as well as supportive men. Fenella Wojnarowska and Susan Burge OBE, later to become the first female Dean of Oxford Medical School, were the two women who inspired Dr. Murrell to pursue academic Dermatology. Today, Dr. Murrell has authored 285 peer reviewed papers and 6 textbooks, including the definitive ‘Blistering Diseases’ text, and her work has received over 10,000 citations. Thus far, her proudest mentoring achievement is that Oxford elective student, Alexa Shipman, who she recruited to edit the History of Women in Dermatology section of IJWD, is now youngest and first female editor of the journal Clinical and Experimental Dermatology.⁠ ⁠ Dr. Murrell was awarded the 2019 WDS International Pioneer Award during the World Congress to honor her many accomplishments in making a difference for women in Dermatology at a global level. ⁠
