CDR’s Stem Cells & Skin Workshop Is Nov. 6

September 4, 2013

The skin constantly renews itself, shedding its upper skin layers daily. Stem cells (SCs) residing in the epidermis and hair follicle ensure the maintenance of adult skin homeostasis and hair regeneration, but they also participate in the repair of the epidermis after juries.

At the Center for Dermal Research’s 5th Annual Workshop on Nov. 6, “Stem Cells and Skin,” speakers will address the current knowledge of epidermal SCs of the adult skin. Speakers will discuss fundamental characteristics, the methods recently designed to isolate these cells, the genes preferentially expressed in the multi-potent SC niche and the signaling pathways involved in the SC niche formation, SC maintenance and activation. Also, the event will speculate on how the deregulation of these pathways may lead to cancer formation and how stem cells play an important role in wound healing and skin regeneration.

The one-day event will be held at the Rutgers University Center For Dermal Research–Life Sciences Building in Piscataway, NJ. The plenary speaker is Elaine Fuchs, Ph.D, investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
