Braiding hair knowledge

Hair science includes several topics that are often dealt with in separate settings. The goal of the 18th meeting of the EHRS is to link together hair knowledge seen from different areas. Basic hair science is providing a continuous growth in the understanding of the molecular mechanisms of hair physiology and pathology leading to development of new therapies and to a better understanding of hair disorders. Invasive and non-invasive diagnostic techniques, including trichoscopy and histopathology can be an added value to basic science studies, as they link the molecular pathophysiology to clinical features, helping both scientists and clinicians to have a 360° overview of the different pathologies. Knowing the mechanisms through which a drug exerts its mechanism on a specific disease also links basic and clinical science and is a mandatory step for correct management of patients with hair loss.
