PAST4FUTURE aims to generate and provide cells, culture systems, protocols for wide implementation of organotypic skin models to all researchers who are working on or with skin. Furthermore we aim to create a platform for researchers to interact, share expertise and experiences to move the field forward.
Once developed and available, resources will be posted here.
PhD student Luca Meesters (RUMC) presented the PAST4FUTURE project with a poster at the PhD retreat for the RIMLS graduate school and RIMLS New Frontiers Symposium: Towards new epidermal cell sources and data-driven optimized organotypic skin models
At the annual NVED scientific meeting, Luca will present her work on the “Untangling the complex cytokine milieu in psoriasis and atopic dermatitis through in vitro epidermal models”
See here the poster from Luca
