SKINTEGRITY.CH is a collaborative research initiative which brings together experts from different disciplines from Swiss and selected external institutions to address the following overarching aims:
• To gain a mechanistic understanding of skin repair and disease using a highly interdisciplinary approach
• To develop novel approaches for improved diagnosis and treatment of impaired wound healing and inflammatory and malignant skin diseases
• To provide an interdisciplinary training for the next generation of scientists, clinicians and engineers
SKINTEGRITY.CH is based on the Zurich Initiative “SKINTEGRITY”, which was selected as flagship project of University Medicine Zurich in 2016. Due to its remarkable success and positive evaluation of new projects, the program was recently prolonged and extended.
