Dermofit is the result of four years of research and development by The University of Edinburgh.

The University has been instrumental in sourcing the extensive image library and associated diagnoses (the app currently boasts over 1,300 images), developing the algorithms to automatically group the photos based on their colour and texture properties, and testing the product with real-life practitioners. Research for the project was funded by the Welcome Foundation.

The App Development Studio at Leeds Beckett University has provided expert consultancy and software engineering assistance in bringing the Dermofit application to market.
