Our goal in life is experimental molecular dermatology. We focus on the molecular genetics and biology of rare genetic skin disorders, but we also study the impact of epigenetic changes on common diseases, including the most frequent human malignancy: basal cell carcinoma.
We apply the tools and knowledge obtained from the rare to the study of the common. Our mission is to understand skin disease at its most basic level so that we can offer our patients rational and effective treatments for their conditions.
The emenemlab will be moving !!
Major changes are underway.
- Maurice is now a Senior PI at the Institute of Medical Biology in Singapore. Together with Xinhong Lim, PhD, he is now running a new lab (the Sebaceous Gland Lab), which, together with an industrial partner, aims to elucidate once and for all the pathogenesis of acne and find a cure for this common skin condition. Maurice will also be running inherited skin disorders clinics in Singapore.
- Maurice and Barry will be moving to Dundee from the 1st of January, 2015. They will be joining DGEM (http://dgem.lifesci.dundee.ac.uk/) at the College of Life Sciences. Exciting move, as the University of Dundee is among the very best in life sciences. Maurice will do inherited skin disorders in Dundee as well.
Meanwhile, we are pleased to note that the lab in Singapore is doing very well - I might post some images soon to illustrate the progress that we have been making.
