Porto Skin Challenges 2018
09 Oct 2017 - 10 Oct 2017 • Porto, Portugal
We are pleased to announce the organisation of the 9th International Conference on Skin Ageing and Challenges which will be held on February 26-27, 2018 in Porto, Portugal.

Skin Challenges 2018 will be held under the patronage of the International Microbiota Society (IMS) and the International Society of Antioxidants in Nutrition and Health (ISANH).

Today, people live older thanks to new advances in medicine but they are becoming more demanding. They want to age in excellent health conditions and they want to look younger. That’s why the Anti-Ageing Medicine seeks to find effective ways to fight against ageing and skin ageing in particular by different actions: oral or topical cosmetics, plastic surgery, regenerative medicine with stem cells and many other actions.

Ageing is an international issue that have social, economic and individual impacts. Preventing it and decreasing its side effects (all related pathologies) are major challenges for humanity. Thus the understanding of ageing and skin ageing mechanisms, related diseases, and recent ageing and skin-ageing delaying advances is a most for future populations.

During Skin Challenges 2018, the Scientific Committee will allocate significant time to discuss the latest advances related to skin homeostasis and ageing. Our objective is to provide answers and to give a future vision of how can the current research delay and decrease the side effects of skin ageing?

The scientific committee will provide more time and space to present the recent innovations, biotechnology products and devices during the two days of conference.

Among the hot topics which will be discussed in Porto: skin ageing mechanisms, mitochondria, Nrf2 modulation, gut and skin microbiota inter-talk, smell and olfactory receptors, exposomes and others…

The aims of Skin Challenges 2018 are to:

- Draft the state of the art in skin ageing

- Present the different mechanisms involved in homeostasis and skin aging but also to address the different tracks and pathways (signaling, transcription factors…) involved in this process

- Highlight the recent innovations in skin ageing and photo ageing

- Presenting the new notion of exposome and skin aging

- What is the strategic role of skin olfactory receptors and smell?

- Discuss the role of microbiota and skin microbiota

Skin Challenges 2018 will gather major actors in the ageing and skin-ageing area and will target researchers and academic professors, R&D departments, clinicians, pharmaceutical companies, food supplement companies, cosmetics companies, marketing departments, investors, start ups and all other stakeholders in the skin ageing industry.

We hope that you will join us for this very interesting international conference and we look forward to welcoming you in sunny Porto.

On behalf of the Scientific Committee
