award0One year ago on the SEPAWA conference in Berlin, we announced to give out the C+K-Research Award for Skin Physiology on the occasion of our company's 30th anniversary in 2016. This year it finally happened.




award3We were most happy to hand over the award endowed with 3000 EUR on this year's SEPAWA event to Ms. Manfei Zhang, a member of Prof. Sijia Wang team of the Max Planck-CAS Paul Gerson Unna Research Group on Dermatogenomics of the Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences, for their work:researchgroup
“A Genome-Wide Association Study of Basal Transepidermal Water Loss Finds that Variants at 9q34.3 Are Associated with Skin Barrier Function”, that they have conducted in collaboration with Fudan University and the IUF-Leibnitz Research Institute for Environmental Medicine in Düsseldorf.

The study could show that epidermal barrier function assessed by transepidermal water loss is associated with variants on chromosome band 9q34.3 in 611 healthy Han Chinese volunteers independent from Filaggrin mutations.

In his laudatio, Prof. Joachim Fluhr of the scientific committee, explained that the decision was based on the fact that this outstanding work is one of the first genome-wide studies on skin physiology in healthy volunteers.
We congratulate taward2he team for the interesting results and special thanks to Ms. Manfei Zhang for coming all the way from China for accepting the award in Berlin.
