Our Research: Dermatology

Our aims

Our Dermatology research theme is:

  • Developing an integrated framework for characterising cellular and molecular processes that initiate and orchestrate skin inflammation and repair
  • Understanding key inflammatory pathomechanisms that promote epithelial stem cell damage and epithelial-mesenchymal transition in human skin and hair follicles, and develop both preventive and therapeutic pharmacological intervention strategies
  • Using a P4 Medicine approach to prevent and predict disease progression and personalise treatment pathways for inflammatory skin disease and chronic wounds
  • Capitalising on powerful collaborations with industry and other dermatology centres
