Insights into Skin Barrier Function from In Silico Models to In Vivo Pathology

16. April 2019 at 11:41

11th to 16th August, 2019, Waterville Valley, NH, US.

Conference Description

The overarching theme of the 2019 GRC is “insights into skin barrier functions from in silico models to in vivo pathology” and the intention is to bring together science leaders from the diverse community of academic and industrial researchers working on the epidermal barrier. This will include those developing molecular simulations of the stratum corneum, new cell and tissue models, and also those characterizing the in vivo pathological changes in skin barrier function associated with skin and systemic diseases.

The major topics of the 2019 meeting will include the following: 

1) new developments in skin and epidermal models

2) in silicomodeling of the skin barrier

3) spontaneous and man-made models of the epidermal barrier;

4) changes in epidermal barrier function and health associated with systemic disease

5) predicting, measuring, and modeling topical drug delivery.

While the themes will define the program agenda as in previous years the meeting will include a poster session to which all registrants are encouraged to submit abstracts and an evening session of short presentations selected from the posters presented at the conference.

Related Meeting

This GRC will be held in conjunction with the “Barrier Function of Mammalian Skin (GRS)” Gordon Research Seminar (GRS). Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRS in addition to an application for the GRC. Refer to the associated GRS program page for more information.
