Sunsmart 5K Run
The SunSmart 5K is a Miller School of Medicine annual student-run event that brings together runners, spectators and the local dermatology community to raise awareness about sun safety and skin cancer. After the race dermatologists from the University of Miami and local dermatology community will provide free skin cancer screening and give informative presentations about sun safety and skin
The Role of Glucocorticoids in Acute Inflammation
Purpose of the Project
The role of the skin is to maintain a barrier that protects us from exposure to mechanical (scratch), chemical (soaps) and biological injuries (UV/sunlight exposure). As the first line of defense, the skin also mobilizes other cells via pro-inflammatory signals. Given the need for a quick and frequent pro-inflammatory response in the epidermis, there must
Microenvironment Regulation of Adipose Derived Stem Cells in Wound Angiogenesis and Repair
Purpose of Project
Our research will study the contribution of adipose tissue (fat tissue) derived stem cells (ADSCs) to wound healing in a human skin model. Stem cells are cells that have potential to develop into diverse specialized cell types. Adult ADSCs have characteristics similar to bone marrow stem cells and represent an alternative source of stem cells. Due to their abu
