Tracking down the mechanisms of skin ageing
Launch of new Christian Doppler Laboratory involving MedUni Vienna, University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences Vienna, Vienna University of Technology and commercial partner Chanel
The ageing process is most apparent in the skin. In the newly opened "SKINMAGINE" (Multimodal Imaging of Aging and Senescence of the Skin) Christian Doppler Laboratory, dermatologists from MedUni Vienna have joined forces with biotechnologists from the University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences Vienna and chemists from Vienna University of Technology, as well as the company CHANEL, to study the interaction of metabolism, cellular communication and cellular quality control in skin ageing accelerated by environmental stress.
