The search for further knowledge on skin functions and mechanisms is at the core of many biomedical and biopharmaceutical research programs today. The extension and complexity of the skin justifies its multiple roles, affecting all physiological processes, far beyond its “barrier” characteristics. More research on skin physiology is needed to better understand various disease mechanisms, and these need not be confined to the skin itself. Skin is also a target for new molecules, supplements, materials and even instruments, with the potential to impact the whole body. Because of its accessibility and relative dimension, it is also a model to study several other body functions, including occupational impacts and adaptation to extreme (including non-terrestrial) conditions.
This holistic vision of human skin explains why skin functions and mechanisms are no longer exclusive subjects of dermatology, but rather a broad knowledge nucleus, attracting researchers from all areas. Whether coming from physiology and pathophysiology, from pharmacology, toxicology, chemistry and pharmaceutical science, from dermatology, cosmetic medicine or plastic surgery - you will be welcomed to contribute with your best research to our “Skin Functions and Mechanisms” research topic, to be housed in Frontiers in Physiology, actively linking scientists, clinical researchers and technicians sharing this common interest within human physiology.
