11th World Congress for Hair Research

I have covered most of the World Congress for Hair Research events since starting this blog in 2013.

World Congress for Hair Research, 2019

The 11th World Congress for Hair Research started today in Barcelona, Spain. There have already been some interesting presentations per the commentary and photos I saw on Twitter via #WCHR2019.

Two of the main Spanish organizers of the Congress are very active on Twitter and worth following:

  1. Dr. Sergio Vañó
  2. Dr. Ramon Grimalt

The scientific program is as impressive as always at these annual events.

Shiseido (Japan)’s Dr. Jiro Kishimoto’s presentation is titled: “Autologous cell-based therapy for hair loss using dermal sheath cup cells.” Perhaps he will give some hints regarding how much further along Shiseido is in its development and enhancement of Replicel’s hair multiplication product?

There are a number of potentially interesting presentations focusing on the dermal papilla, prostaglandins, neogenesis, stem cells and hair genetics. One presentation has the strange title of: “Minoxidil and dutasteride drug tattooing for androgenetic alopecia”.
