Skin ageing and cancer

With a growing ageing population, understanding the intricate mechanisms that drive skin ageing and developing interventions to prevent or treat its effects are critical challenges we aim to address.

About our research

Our primary focus is on advancing research in skin diseases that impact millions of individuals worldwide, including acne, psoriasis, eczema, and skin cancer.

By delving into the underlying mechanisms of these conditions, we strive to develop novel therapies that can target their root causes.

Through our collaborative efforts between academia and industry, we aim to make significant advancements in the field of dermatology.

We explore the complexities of skin ageing and cancer research, driving knowledge and innovation towards improved treatments and outcomes.

We are transforming lives through groundbreaking research on global skin diseases
