Vichy to encourage research activity on exposome

Vichy Laboratoires are launching a new grant to fund research on exposome and its effects on the skin.

The Vichy Exposome Grant will promote and encourage research activity on the skin exposome. One research grant of 15000 euros will be awarded annually to a research project proposal in the field of exposome and skin.

What is exposome?

The human body is subjected to and responds to complex exposures throughout the lifespan, including exposures from the environment, diet, lifestyle. For this highly complex interaction, the term exposome was recently coined by Dr. Christopher Wild at the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer.

The exposome analysis, therefore, complements the human genome by providing a comprehensive description of individuals’ lifelong environmental exposures. Exposome research aims to look at the holistic view of the human body’s exposures, how the body responds to those exposures, and their combined effects,” says Vichy.

The research project proposal on skin exposome may be fundamental or clinical and may encompass any aspects of exposome. Projects focused on skin diseases will not be considered. Work may be performed at any hospital, university or other not-for-profit research institution.

Applications for the Vichy Exposome Grant will be reviewed by an international jury of experts chaired by Professor Jean Krutmann (Leibniz Research Institute for Environmental Medicine,Germany) and including Professors Craig Elmets (University of Alabama at Birmingham,USA), Haidong Kan (Fudan University,China), Thierry Passeron (University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis, France) and Sergio Schalka (Santo Amaro University, São Paulo,Brazil).

The deadline for applications is July 8, 2016.
