Project title: Prevention and treatment of alopecia areata with agents that recover hair follicles' immune privilege properties

                                                                                                                                                     
 

I joined CIHR-SRTC in 2012 after completing my PhD training in Experimental Medicine at UBC. My current project aims to identify the factors involved in the collapse of immune privilege in normal hair follicle, the reason we believe is the key to trigger Alopecia Areata (AA), an inflammatory hair loss disease, which affects 1 to 2 out of 100 people in their lifetime. I strongly believe that my proposed project has potential to benefit for patients who suffer from AA. Our strategy of recovering immune privilege to cure autoimmune-mediated hair loss may also help other autoimmune-mediated diseases such as scleroderma, psoriasis, and dermatomyositis. I enjoyed the excellent environment both in basic and clinical research that the CIHR Skin Research Training Centre provides me.
