BS7013 Skin Biology: Theory and Practices

Event Start Date: 3/5/2018

Event End Date: 3/9/2018

The graduate course comprises 9 lectures in the morning and practical sessions later in the day during the course duration. For course timetable: Click here.

The course aims to introduce skin biology to postgraduate students at an advanced level, and equip them with the background knowledge and practical skills to carry out independent research. The lecture topics range widely from organization and development of skin, to skin pathology, wound healing and stem cells. The laboratory practical classes focus on basic essential tools for skin biology research, from isolation and culture of primary skin cells and 3D culture, as well as useful immunohistological techniques.  For more information: Click here. The course is validated for credits for NTU graduate students and is CME accredited. No fees are involved.

The course organizers have opened up to 5 full-time slots for PhD students (e.g. A*STAR, NUS and overseas partner schemes), dermatology trainees, researchers and clinicians from A*STAR, NHG and NTU institutions to attend the course full-time, i.e. both lectures and practical sessions.

For full-time course registration, please go to and submit your details by 19 Jan 2017 (Fri).
