Departmental Research Conference

The 28th Departmental Research Conference
April 19, 2014 (Sat.) Takamasa Ito, Ph.D. Course Students

At the research conference, 12 graduate course students, including Dr. Honma, who started her graduate course this year, delivered presentations.

Presentations from the 1st Lab addressed gene analysis for inherited keratoses and searches for keratinization- associated long non-coding RNAs. The 2nd Lab presented on the establishment of a new ELISA for CoL17, the analysis of autoantibodies, the formation of spheroids in epidermal cells, and the analysis of CD52 expression in cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.

The 4th Lab presented on the pathological elucidation of, and searches for new biomarkers for, severe drug eruptions, the relationship between skin differentiation and mitochondria, the expression of type 7 collagen in revertant mosaicism of epidermolysis bullosa, and new therapies for that disorder. The conference was successful, with active discussions by many doctors. It was stimulating for the students and resident doctors, giving them even more motivation for research.

The 29th Departmental Research Conference
November 29, 2014 (Sat.) Erina Homma, Ph.D. Course Students

A presentation session attended by 21 staff doctors and graduate students was held at the Conference Hall of the Medical Department. The presentations of the 1st Lab were done under the challenging theme of elucidating the cause of ichthyosis. The presentations addressed the elucidation of hereditary diseases, the development of readthrough therapies and the elucidation of the mechanism of keratinization. The 2nd Lab’s presentations were on developments in hair follicle tissue culturing, the elucidation of autoimmune blistering disease pathology and the function of COL17, the establishment of new ELISAs, the study of spheroids, the mutual interactions between epidermal basement membrane proteins and related diseases, and analyses of the MF onset mechanism. The 4th Lab’s presentations covered various areas, including searches for biomarkers of severe drug eruptions, the elucidation of mitochondrial function in the skin, the pathological elucidation of skin eruptions after the eradication of Helicobacter pylori, and a new regenerative therapy for epidermolysis bullosa. At this conference, pre-conference presentations for the JSID Meeting that would be held in Osaka in December 2014 were given by four doctors. Lively discussion followed each presentation, and the conference was a very meaningful occasion for us to renew our awareness of the study themes of the department. For the resident doctors who will go on to the graduate course, it was an ideal opportunity to deepen their interest in research.
