iUIBS Seminar: “Engineering hair follicles in hairless skin”

On Tuesday, November 8, in the auditorium of the Institute, a new scientific seminar was organized within the Institute’s dissemination program. On this occasion, the seminar was given by a specialist in tissue regeneration and its application to dermatology, Department of Bioengineering, Imperial College London; Dr. Claire Higgins (www.higginslab.org).

This researcher, invited by our colleague Dr. Francisco Jimenez, of the Group of Medical Pathology, addressed the applications of tissue engineering to dermatology. However, being an international specialist in the field of tissue engineering and regeneration, it aroused the interest of some members of the Institute, while it was a good opportunity to talk about potential collaborations in other areas or request joint projects .
