We believe in sharing our passion for skin and hair research with students and scientists from all over the world. We do this by organizing educational courses and by offering a joint doctoral training program together with other universities.


Hair and skin educational courses

The goal of our courses is to create extensive discussion about the fundamental and new scientific concepts and challenges of skin and hair biology, with particular emphasis on its relevance to the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industry. We assemble an impressive faculty of internationally renowned speakers who will share their knowledge, ideas and opinions covering key topics in the science, as well as current and next generation models for studying skin hair biology and responses to test agents.

Our 1st international training course “Hair biology & translational research in a nutshell - 2019” was every successful. We had invited many eminent speakers from the field and there were 25+ participants from all over the world.

To keep the momentum, we are happy to share our upcoming courses in 2020:

  • 1st skin international training course “Skin inflammation and inflammatory skin disease” (12th – 13th June, 2020)
  • 2nd international training course “Hair biology & translational research in a nutshell” (6th – 7th September, 2020)

Doctoral training program

Currently, we have three in-house PhD students who are examining basic and translational research questions in hair and skin areas. These PhD studentships are fully or partially funded by industries. Each Ph.D. student is affiliated to an academic institution where he/she will defend his/her thesis, and is co-supervised by an academic supervisor from different universities.
