My Research

The overall goal of my research is to advance the current understanding of the skin barrier and how it can be overcome for transdermal drug delivery by applying topical formulations. Further, the aim is to understand key processes that are required to maintain a proper skin barrier and a healthy skin organ and if it is possible to alleviate and promote these processes by skin care formulations. In brief, this is achieved by combining well-defined and relatively simple experimental conditions with the complex biological skin barrier system to connect the molecular properties of the skin barrier with its macroscopic barrier properties.
