2013 Skin of Color Symposium:
From Bench to Bedside
The Hampton University Skin of Color Research Institute (HUSCRI) Skin of Color Symposium 2013: From Bench to Bedside is a unique conference designed to disseminate and communicate the latest research in skin diseases disproportionately affecting minority populations. This year’s meeting will be held in Baltimore.
By the year 2050, people with skin of color (including Africans, African Americans, Asians, Native Americans and Hispanics) will represent more than half of the U.S. population. Little data exists on the structural, functional, and clinical properties in skin of color. The Hampton University Skin of Color Research Institute (HUSCRI) was established to advance the research and treatment of skin diseases that primarily affect people with skin of color and is the first of its kind in Virginia and at an historically black college or university.
Our mission is to conduct research, build and disseminate knowledge and create educational forums in order to improve the understanding and treatment of skin disorders that uniquely affect people with skin of color.
