Hair Loss Research by Country

During the almost two years that I have been writing this blog, it has become increasingly evident that there are significant resources being devoted to finding a cure for hair loss in numerous countries around the world. Almost all research is undertaken at universities or labs affiliated with universities.

I have now created a permanent page on this site where you can readily see what groundbreaking hair loss research is happening in what country. For more, see Hair Loss Research Around The World. By the end of the year, I hope to have a lot more thumbnails on that map. Especially from China, India, Brazil, Russia and other larger countries that are currently sparsely covered.

Feel free to comment under this post with suggestions for any additions. Note that I am only including institutions that satisfy at least one of the below criteria. They need to be:

  1. Home to at least one renowned hair loss researcher. Or,
  2. Have been in the news many times when it comes to groundbreaking hair loss related research and discoveries. Or,
  3. Have published many hair loss related papers in reputable journals.

  1. Admin,

    I have asked you this several times in the chat. Is there any update on Dr. Lauster and do you you think he found some cure but companies such as bosley and hair restoration firms paid him off? Please let me know if there is an update. I know he has a public email, have you tried contacting him?

  2. Great work admin. For all of those who are still doom and gloom about the future of hair loss treatments I don’t share your sentiments. With so many focusing on the cure and huge potential profits it’s only a matter of short time medically speaking before AGA is a thing of the past.

    1. it’s encouraging that there ar emany doing their best to cure this condition… but if you look at studies from decades ago.. almost nothing comes to fruition.. in every field of medicine.. things which are miraculous such as tooth regeneration with lasers( scientists said it would be here decades ago, when they discovered it) still nothing, hair cloning was supposed to be here years ago still not even on the horizon…. i believe there’s some supression going on… all these treatments which would put many traditional procedures out of bussiness have likely been bought off..

      1. That tooth regenrative device is called LIPUS which was first developed 10 years ago. This could’ve changed the modern dental industry as we know it. Using ultra sound to massage your gum, it can regrow your teeth and repair cavity.

        1. Where is this lipus now? I checked and the creators basically succeeded in creating the technology and a small device but where is it now? Nowhere .. Why? Because if we all fixed our teeth with a simple laser.. An entire industry would collapse im sure the same happened with intercytex… These things have been discovered and secuantially bought off.. Because money corrupts each and every single human being.. That simple

  3. Im beginning to think that the best hope for long term treatment is a really fantastic hair transplant with an unlimited supply of donor hair (created via cloning or hair multiplication). While I really am hopeful for a treatment that gets to the source of the problem and that can regrow the inactive hair in the scalp, I just don’t see how such a treatment wouldn’t cause unwanted side effects at the hormonal level. Sometimes powerful drugs like these dont showcase their truly awful side effects until decades later and I doubt any of us want to wait that long to fix the hairloss we already have. I’m not trying to be all doom and gloom, but I think my hopes are more set on a highly refined hair transplant. What are your thoughts?

    Btw, thanks for creating such an awesome blog admin! It’s like a one-stop shop for all cutying edge info on hairloss advances.
