Biodegradeble nanoparticles as topical drug delivery into hair follicels awarded for the best poster of Porto Skin Challenges 2018

Nethanel Friedman from the Laboratory of Dr Ofra Benny at the Faculty of Medicine, The Hebrew University, Jerusalem was awarded for his poster presentation and his studies about Biodegradeble nanoparticles as topical drug delivery into hair follicels presented during Porto Skin Challenges Congress 2018.

The poster of Mr Friedman highlighted the penetration and delivery of drugs into the deepest dermal layers. In his work, he developed an improved drug delivery system based on biodegradable nanoparticles targeting the hair follicles and sebaceous glands. Accumulation of particles loaded with drug in the deepest layers of the follicles has a great potential to serve as an efficient tool for topical drug delivery in many diseases.

According to him: “Skin Challenges 2018” has been a wonderful opportunity to be exposed to the most updated and innovative research in the field of skin ageing.
International gathering of leading scientists from academy and industry that are working on skin challenges, provides a great platform to meet with colleagues in the field and to initiate new collaborations.
The event was very enjoyable and well organized. I am looking forward to participate in the meeting next year.”
