We sponsor 9-10 monthly lectures over the year, including several from distinguished scientists in skin biology/disease from outside UC Irvine. These lectures are coordinated with the Department of Dermatology Grand Rounds to enable these speakers to additionally present a lecture to the more clinically-oriented Dermatology Faculty. This program brings in leading skin biologists for the benefit of the Center research community and the skin disease community at UC Irvine.
As a major visible program throughout campus, we continue the day-long Annual Symposium on Skin Biology and Disease. This annual event started with a symposium supported by the Stem Cell Center, on Clinical Translation of Stem Cell Approaches to Skin Biology and Disease in 2015. In 2017, through additional support from the Department of Dermatology and corporate sponsors, we were able to continue with the yearly Skin Symposium. The symposium is attended by 100-150 people from all areas of Southern California, from Los Angeles to San Diego. The next symposium will be held on January 2020 with the following speakers:
