Irini Dijkhoff (ESR3) attended the European Epidermal Barrier Research Network Meeting in Toulouse

The 16th edition of the annual European Epidermal Barrier Research Network meeting was held in Toulouse, France, from 27th to 28th of September 2018. This event is a meeting point for European scientists that are interested in a broad range of aspects regarding epidermal barrier function. Research topics varied from using CRISPR-Cas9 editing in 3D in vitro diseased skin models and the development of a chicken skin model, to ceramide metabolism and the triple action of Leflunomide, a Rheumatoid Arthritis medicine, for the treatment of inflammatory skin diseases. A poster was presented by Irini Dijkhoff (ESR3) on the build-up of the CITYCARE project and the development of our in-house CITYCARE 3D in vitro skin model. A PDF copy of the poster is available here.
