about this item
This indispensable volume highlights recent studies identifying epigenetic mechanisms as essential regulators of skin development, stem cell activity and regeneration; promotes the skin as an accessible model system for studying mechanisms that control organ development and regeneration and are of broad relevance in other areas of biology and medicine; and stimulates the development of novel therapeutics for skin disorders and new approaches to skin regeneration that target the epigenome. It uncovers the fundamental significance of epigenetic mechanisms in skin development and regeneration, and emphasizes the development of new therapies for a number of skin disorders, such as pathological conditions of epidermal differentiation, pigmentation and carcinogenesis. At least six categories of researchers will find this book essential including: stem cell, developmental, hair follicle or molecular biologists, gerontologists or clinical dermatologists.
