Funding to research skin defects28th September 2007
Scientists in Scotland have been awarded a £1.3m grant from the Medical Research Council to develop new drugs to combat a painful skin condition.
The money will fund three new research posts to tackle eczema and enable academics to study a gene called filaggrin, which was discovered by Dundee University scientists last year. Part of the work will take place in the university’s new drug discovery unit at its School of Life Sciences where experts will look for new drugs to boost sufferers’ skin barrier function.
