Novel targets for skin health

Our aim

  • We are looking for novel targets and concepts in the treatment of dermatological diseases
    • Targets can be proteins or nucleic acids whose function can be modulated by a small molecule or biological therapy; which have a scientific rationale in a disease of interest, but which have not been necessarily validated in that indication
