She has clinical and laboratory-based research interests in skin aging and pigmentation and has published extensively based on her pioneering work in these fields. Gilchrest is a member of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences and was cited in the book, 100 Best Doctors in America.

NAI Charter Fellows will be inducted by the U.S. Commissioner for Patents, Margaret A. Focarino, from the United States Patent and Trademark Office, during the 2nd Annual Conference of the NAI on Feb. 22, 2013, in Tampa, Fla. Fellows will be presented with a special trophy and a rosette pin.
