With more than 160 attendees from both the academic and the industry, the virtual workshop about " Skin Barrier and Stratum Corneum Lipids " organized by Dow Silicones Belgium on the 25th of March was a real success. This event gathered 6 keynote speakers and 4 early-stage researchers. It generated a great discussion about the barrier functions of both healthy and diseased skin with a specific focus on the role of stratum corneum lipids.
We received several positive feedbacks from both the speakers and the attendees. The CITYCARE team would like to thank one more time all the speakers for their time and inspiring presentations. This event would not have been so enjoyable without the great organization from Ernie Weiss and the Studio 2020 team from Dow headquarters and the support of Liv Kristina Schneider-Affeld, Global Business Communications Manager at Dow Home & Personal Care.
This event was also another great opportunity for two of our ESRs, Benedetta Petracca and Roxane Prieux, to present their project results to a scientific audience. Well done!
