About Me

Kyle Amber, MD, is an international leader in the field of autoimmune blistering diseases as well as complex medical dermatology. He has published over 100 peer-reviewed manuscripts as well as numerous book chapters pertaining to the diagnosis and treatment of autoimmune blistering diseases. He created Chicago’s first dermatology infusion center at RUSH, providing care for patients with blistering diseases, hidradenitis suppurativa and other conditions requiring intravenous therapies. His research lab focuses on mechanisms of innate immune activation in pemphigoid, with a particular interest in single-cell transcriptomic approaches. His work aims to identify treatment targets that can reduce or eliminate the need for high-dose corticosteroids during the acute phase of disease.

Amber’s research interest in the minimization of steroid-related comorbidities in patients with autoimmune diseases led to an international collaboration to investigate the incidence of pneumocystis infections in patients with autoimmune blistering diseases; this was subsequently published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Dermatology. He serves as an editorial board member for the American Journal of Clinical Dermatology, in addition to serving as a peer reviewer for over 40 journals. He has served as a grant reviewer for several international granting bodies, including the National Institutes of Health.
