Professor Soyer is an academic dermatologist with over 30 years experience in the field. He was appointed as the inaugural Chair in Dermatology by The University of Queensland (UQ) in 2007 and as Director of the Princess Alexandra Hospital (PAH) Dermatology Department in 2008. He has a strong focus on translational skin cancer research in his dual role as the Director of the Dermatology Research Centre (DRC), part of UQ School of Medicine, and leadership of the Dermatology Department at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane. He is also an Adjunct Professor within the UQ Diamantina Institute.

Professor Soyer is internationally recognised in the field of dermatology with particular expertise in the areas of clinical dermatology, dermatooncology, dermatopathology and dermatologic imaging (dermoscopy and reflectance confocal microscopy). Within the dermatology discipline he is a pioneer and world leader in the field of dermoscopy of pigmented skin lesions, a non-invasive diagnostic method. He has lead the development of the morphologic classification system currently used worldwide.

One of his research focuses is to expand the concept and applications of teledermatology and teledermoscopy, and he is CIE in the Centre of Research Excellence (CRE) in Telehealth. Most recently he was awarded a CRE for the Study of Naevi, to further investigate why some moles turn into deadly cancers and others don't, with the aim of improving our understanding of naevus development and transformation, along with recognition of the associated changes, to better prevent, predict and detect skin cancer and melanoma.

Professor Soyer has an extensive publication record with over 600 publications to date, with more than 550 citations per year (in the last 5 years) and an h-index of 63 (Google Scholar). His text book entitled "Dermoscopy - The Essentials 2nd Edition", co-authored with G Argenziano, R Hofmann-Wellenhof and I Zalaudek, has now been translated into 4 different languages (Russian, Chinese, Polish and Portuguese) and is considered a world-leading text book in the field.

Professor Soyer was the recipient of an NHMRC Practitioner Fellowship (2012-2016), and since his appointment with UQ, has been awarded 2 NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence Grants (CIA, CIE), 3 NHMRC Project Grants (CIA, CIA, CID), 1 NHMRC Partnership Grant (CIB), 2 ARC Discovery Project Grants (CIB, CID), with many additional projects funded through other competitive, industry and philanthropic funding sources. In total, through his involvement as an investigator, he has achieved over $20M in research funding for UQ.
