The role of fatty acid synthase (FASN) in the initial stages of senescence and ageing

During the Skin Challenges 2020, Dr. Midusa Mahenthiran from Barts And The London Smd – Blizard Institute, United Kingdom will present a short oral presentation entitled “The role of fatty acid synthase (FASN) in the initial stages of senescence and ageing“.

Introduction: Senescence plays a major role in pathological processes such as ageing and cancer. It is characterised by a secretory state known as senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP), which involves release of factors such as interleukin 1α (IL-1α), IL-1β and IL-6 and small extracellular vesicles (EVs). [1] This study explored the role of fatty acid synthase (FASN) in senescence and its potential as a therapeutic target for ageing.

Chances & Challenges when investigating the skin microbiome

Dr. Rainer Simmering from Henkel AG & Co. KGaA, Germany will join the Skin Ageing & Challenges 2020 Congress which will be organized on November 8-9 as virtual congress and will give a presentation entitled “Chances & Challenges when investigating the skin microbiome“.

Summary of the Talk: To understand the skin microbiome uses modern technologies are used and many hypotheses aim to understand the composition of the respective ecosystem. Even though the knowledge of the microbial composition is of great importance, it might not always be properly assessed and the results might get misinterpreted. On top the phylogenetic information might not explain always the functionalities observed in a microbial ecosystem. The talk aims to discuss the changes the knowledge of the skin microbiome will have in the future but also will pinpoint some pitfalls.

The role of AI in skin cancer diagnosis

Dr. Ricardo Vardasca, from the University of Porto, Portugal, will join the Skin Challenges 2020 congress and give a talk entitled “The role of AI in skin cancer diagnosis“.

Summary of the Talk: The usage of different imaging modalities to assist in skin cancer diagnosis is a common daily practice, although the integration and understanding of the whole parameters given by the different images can be a challenging task for physicians, so artificial intelligence (AI) methods can be implemented to assist them in this process.

This talk will be focused on all the distinct imaging modalities used in dermatology for skin cancer diagnosis that has already been coupled with AI classification methods.

Some background, examples of applications and further directions of research will be proposed and disclosed in the topic.
