The Role of the Skin Microbiome in Psoriasis
Thursday, Oct. 15, 2015
4 p.m. PST / 6 p.m. CST / 7 p.m. EST
This webcast will examine an innovative research project funded by the National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF). Pranab Mukherjee, Ph.D., of Case Western Reserve University, received NPF’s Lozick Discovery Research Grant to study the role of the skin microbiome and mycobiome in the development of psoriasis. The microbiome (microorganisms) and mycobiome (fungi) on the skin are believed to impact the development of psoriasis lesions.
During this webcast, Dr. Mukherjee will describe his work to identify bacterial and fungal microbiota in people with psoriasis, and define the correlation between skin microbiota and psoriasis.
