Dr. Chantal Pichon from French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS ), France will join the Skin Ageing & Challenges 2019 congress and present her study on interaction between Skin and Microbiota during the presentation entitled “Dialogue between the skin and the microbiota: The immune system is under control“.
Summary of the presentation: The skin, the largest organ of our body is also the outermost barrier of the organism. It protects from external harm and senses danger signals. The skin contains also microbial communities recognized as skin microbiota that constitutes one living response barrier to environmental factors. Those microorganisms live in complete harmony with the immune players and are involved in the epithelial barrier reinforcement. Under various types of stress, the symbiotic relationship changes into a dysbiotic one resulting in skin disorders. The talk will be focused on the cutaneous immune system from cellular to molecular actors and how skin microbiota can acts to limit pathogenic microbial invasion and to promote various aspects of immune responses.
