Update 2019: Dr. Kevin McElwee from Canada is now a professor at UK-based University of Bradford’s Centre for Skin Sciences. Also, some of the below mentioned hair loss researchers and scientists may no longer be working at the University.
Update 2018: The University of Bradford and Follicum have entered into an agreement regrading developing new peptide drugs. Research collaboration will begin in 2019, and entail both hair loss and diabetes.
On this blog, I have discussed important hair loss research that is being undertaken at universities around the world. The most renowned/widely covered work is happening at Columbia University in the US (under Dr. Angela Christiano), Durham University in the UK (under Dr. Colin Jahoda) and the University of Pennsylvania in the US (under Dr. George Cotsarelis).
Hair Loss Research at The University of Bradford
However, recently, while reading about Dr. Valerie Randall’s keynote presentation at the 22nd annual ISHRS meeeting, I realized that the University of Bradford (UK) where she works at perhaps leads all universities in the world in terms of the amount and range of hair loss related research being conducted there every year. On the university’s Centre for Skin Sciences staff page, one can see the names of some of the world’s leading hair research scientists.
Besides Dr. Randall, among the better known of these researchers include Dr. Des Tobin (lot of research related to hair pigment changes); Dr. Natalia V Botchkareva (lot of research related to MicroRNA’s impact on skin and hair); and Dr. Vladimir A Botchkarev.
