Dr. Charareh Pourzand from University of Bath, United Kingdom, will join the Skin Ageing & Challenges 2020 Congress which will be held on June 4-5, 2020 in Porto, Portugal and will give a presentation entitled “Introduction on the role of iron and hepcidin in the process of cells and wound healing“.
Dr. Pourzand highlights: Here I will first introduce the knowledge that currently links iron homeostasis to skin cells’ function and wound healing process. I will then talk about how the process of ageing and photo-ageing can disturb the iron homeostasis. I will also provide a brief summary of the relationship that exists between wound healing process in the skin and iron deficiency. I will finish my talk with some of the innovative strategies that we have recently developed to counteract the iron-mediated damage against aged /photoaged skin.
