Friday, 25 September

Post-Doc Jasper Koning and PhD Student Jonas Jäger recently joined the group of hDMT PI Sue Gibbs of the Amsterdam UMC, location VUMC.

They are going to continue the NextSkin project which aims to develop a novel in vitro platform for testing penetration of actives via hair shafts in human metabolically and immune-competent skin equivalents. It will contain living, growing hair which has barrier properties, immune-competent Langerhans cells as well as microfluidics vasculature in a skin on a chip format.

This model can be used for experimental research, testing of compounds as well as drug discovery.
