New seeding ground for collaborative skin projects

A group of young researchers from the LEO Foundation Skin Immunology Research Center and clinical dermatological departments in Copenhagen have joined forces. They have created a new network that brings together high-end skills from basic, translational and clinical skin research.

As the LEO Foundation Skin Immunology Research Center is built on the ‘team science concept’, which joins forces between basic, translational and clinical skin research, so is the Young Investigator Network.

The network is a new initiative made by early-career researchers from the LEO Foundation Skin Immunology Research Center and clinical dermatological departments in the Copenhagen area. The network aims to expand the professional network of its members and to initiate interdisciplinary research activities with peers.

Members range from basic lab scientists in the Mærsk Tower, where the LEO Foundation Skin Immunology Research Center is located, to dermatologists in training at the clinical dermatology departments at Herlev and Gentofte Hospital, Bispebjerg and Frederiksberg Hospital and Roskilde University Hospital. Each member contributes with specialized skills, methodological expertise and unique access to data within their particular field of skin and skin disease research.

The network works as seeding ground for larger collaborative projects in and beyond the LEO Foundation Skin Immunology Research Center.
