Elucidating the Molecular Landscape of the Stratum Corneum Using 3D OrbiSIMS

Dr. Nichola Starr, University of Nottingham, United Kingdom, will join Skin Ageing & Challenges 2022 to give an interesting presentation entitled “Elucidating the Molecular Landscape of the Stratum Corneum Using 3D OrbiSIMS”.

Dr. Starr’s recent research has focused on gaining a better understanding of the complex chemistry of the skin, in particular the stratum corneum. Using a state-of-the-art 3D-OrbiSIMS technique she and her team have been able to conduct unprecedented molecular characterization of this barrier layer, providing a basis for future research into fundamental processes, such as those associated with skin aging and disease. They have utilized this technique to conduct in situ analysis of ex vivo human skin tissue, observing both the lateral and depth distribution of a wide range of molecular species and exposing the non-homogeneity and chemical intricacy of the upper skin layers. 

Join us in November in Lisbon to know more about this topic.
