Clinically Predictive Models in Preclinical Dermatological Research

This HUB focuses on introducing validated and new preclinical research human models, including a novel humanized mouse for atopic dermatitis research, and discussing the advantage of using human models for predicting responses and mechanisms of action. 

Session Date: September 10th, 2022

Session Time: 10.30 – 11.15

Room: HUB 2 – Exhibition Hall

Chair: Prof. Ralf Paus, MD, DSc, FRSB (Miami, USA)


10.30 am           Welcome

10.33 am           Hair Research Models – Marta Bertolini, PhD (Münster, Germany)

The speaker will provide an overview of human models for alopecia areata and androgenetic alopecia research, such as the organ culture of human healthy and diseased scalp hair follicles, and unique in vivo humanized models.

10.44 am           Immunodermatology: Models for Atopic Dermatitis Research – Prof. Kristian Reich, MD PhD (Hamburg, Germany)

In vitro, ex vivo, and in vivo models for atopic dermatitis research will be presented, with emphasis son 3D reconstructed skin models, organ culture of healthy and lesional human skin, and unique humanized mouse models.

10.55 am           Skin Aging and Skin Rejuvenation Models – Prof. Ralf Paus, MD, DSc, FRSB (Miami, USA)

The speaker will provide an overview of models for aging and skin rejuvenation research, such as the organ culture of human skin, and a unique in vivo humanized model.

11.06 am           Q&A Session and Discussion

If you would like to schedule an appointment with usplease do not hesitate to contact Dr. Marta Bertolini at We will be happy to discuss our newest, compelling research highlights and to introduce you our capabilities in supporting your pre-clinical and clinical research, or project results if you are already collaborating with us.

We are looking forward to meeting you in person in Milan!
