Skin Biology and Diseases Resource-Based Center


Educational activities and initiatives in the Skin Biology and Diseases Resource-based Center are managed through the Administrative Core’s Enrichment Program. This includes the SBDRC website and newsletter, seminars, workshops, lectures, and one-on-one interactions with visiting distinguished scientists. The Dermatology Skin Research Morning and the SBDRC Annual Research Retreat are two seminars devoted to teaching about skin biology through the sharing of research progress. The program supports several joint clinical and basic science didactic series, including the Dermatology Department’s Bench to Bedside Series, Grand Rounds and the Basic Science Journal Club, meetings of the Epithelial Cell Biology Initiative, Dermatology Research in Progress Series, the Dermatology Translational Journal Club, and the Fibrosis and Repair Group.

The Enrichment Program of the Administrative Core fosters also collaborations among SBDRC users through research conferences, networking opportunities, and regular university-wide communications, including:
