This year’s Chanel ‘CE.R.I.E.S.’ Award that honors global research in the area of healthy skin and/or its reactions
to environmental factors has been scooped up by Japan’s Emi Nishimura M.D., Ph.D.
Professor Nishimura has been awarded for a project that could lead to new preventative measures that delays the signs of ageing.
The Chair of the stem cell biology department at Tokyo Medical and Dental University in Japan aims to further elucidate the mechanisms of skin ageing and their application to skin regeneration and rejuvenation.
“This project will employ sophisticated genetic and imaging techniques to monitor the fate
of so-called stem cells in skin and hair follicles and to determine their response to environmental stress and ageing,” explains Professor Gilchrest, president of the CE.R.I.E.S. Scientific Advisory Board.
