Richard Guy, Ph.D., Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Bath, UK. Prof. Guy’s research focuses on skin barrier function characterization, dermal drug delivery and the assessment of skin penetration.
James G. Krueger, M.D., Ph.D., Professor of Dermatology at The Rockefeller University, New York, NY, USA. Prof. Krueger has done analyses on the regulation of immune pathways in psoriatic skin.
Thomas Luger, M.D., Ph.D., Professor of Dermatology and Chairman of the Department of Dermatology, and also the Director of the Institute of Cell Biology and Immunobiology of the Skin at Münster University, Germany. Prof. Luger’s clinical interest is focused on allergic inflammation and autoimmune diseases of the skin.
Georg Stingl, M.D., Professor and Chairman of Dermatology, Division of Immunology, Allergy & Infectious Diseases (DIAID), Department of Dermatology, Medical University of Vienna, Austria.
