Topic: A Glimpse into the Norwood Lecture by Angela M. Christiano
Norwood Lecturer Bio
Dr. Christiano is the Professor, Departments of Dermatology and Genetics & Development; Vice-Chair and Director of Research, Department of Dermatology Columbia University, New York, NY, USA.
The major focus of Dr. Christiano’s research is the study of inherited skin and hair disorders in humans and mice, through a classical genetic approach including identification and phenotyping of disease families, genetic linkage, gene discovery and mutation analysis, and functional studies relating these findings to basic questions in epidermal biology. Her interests include transcriptional regulation of hair cycling and differentiation, the biology of cadherin-mediated cell adhesion junctions known as desmosomes, and the morphogenesis epidermal appendages such as hair and teeth. A long-range goal of her work is to develop genetic and cell-based therapies for skin and hair diseases through understanding disease pathogenesis. She is using epithelial reprogramming as a therapeutic approach for inherited skin diseases.
