    interested in participating in translational research in dermatology with a combined goal of improving our understanding of dermatology and ultimately of improving the care of our patients Some areas of research currently underway in the UCD Charles Institute of Dermatology include Psoriasis Psoriasis is a multi systemic inflammatory skin disease affecting approximately 2 of the population and characterized by well defined red scaly plaques on the skin In addition to skin manifestations the inflammation can also affect joints of patients resulting in psoriatic arthritis There is currently no cure for psoriasis with treatment modalities aimed at disease control Our work is aimed at evaluating the pathophysiology and progression of psoriasis in patients and animal models In conjunction with leading industry partners we are developing and testing novel therapeutic compounds to alleviate the symptoms associated with specific psoriasis subtypes Atopic dermatitis Pathophysiology and neuroimmune mechanisms of atopic dermatitis Atopic dermatitis is one of the most common skin diseases that affect 15 30 of children and 2 10 of adults In spite of this high prevalence the exact pathophysiological processes underlying the disease are unknown Recent research has highlighted the importance of not only the immune system but also less well known factors in the development of the disease Our research focuses on the complex interactions between the nervous and immune systems to find previously unknown molecular mechanisms responsible for this common dermatological condition Understanding the pathophysiology by which this neuroimmune communication occurs will undoubtedly help the development of targeted and mechanism based therapies against AD Itch Molecular mechanisms of itch Itch is the most common dermatological condition affecting up to 8 of the adult population to varying degrees In spite of it s common nature true understanding of the molecular pathways activated during itch eludes us This is especially true in the case of chronic non histaminergic itch where conventional therapies are often not effective By combining novel in vitro ex vivo and in vivo model systems we hope to find promising new targets for further translational research Molecular mechanisms of exocytosis and endocytosis for inflammatory mediators and their receptors Chronic pruritus is initiated by abnormally upregulated exocytosis vesicle fusion and release the content of neuropeptides cytokines and chemokines etc In response to their endocytosis internalization and intracellular routing a number of the subcellular signaling pathways are activated Possible consequences include the modulation of functions of puriceptors by elevation of their expression and transportation as well as augmentation of release of other inflammatory factors Thus it is pivotal to pinpoint the key molecular components and understanding the underlying mechanism in the processes of exocytosis and endocytosis in the condition of chronically inflammatory diseases The gleaned information is used to design and develop novel therapeutics for chronic pruritus Genodermatoses Epidemiological and Pathophysiological Studies about the Problem of Itch Pruritus in Patients with Epidermolysis Bullosa EB Epidermolysis Bullosa EB is a family of genetic skin diseases characterized by skin fragility Its clinical severity varies with the resultant spectrum of symptoms and complications depending

    Dermatologists Patient Information Leaflets Charles Institute Irish Skin Foundation National Registry of Skin Disease Irish Skin Foundation Over one third of the Irish population are affected by a skin complaint at any one time We know that life with a skin condition can be challenging and so we provide information encouragement and assistance to patients with all skin conditions in the following ways Provide information and support We offer general information and support to people with skin conditions We are also developing a new Nurse Helpline service for specialist dermatology advice it operates on a limited basis at present and we hope to extend the capacity of the service in 2015 18 Health promotion and disease awareness We work with people in the dermatology community people with skin conditions GPs nurses physicians and healthcare providers to produce accessible health promotion and awareness materials Our aim is to empower people with skin conditions support timely diagnosis and treatment and promote public awareness Advocacy and policy The Foundation represents people with skin conditions and advocates on their behalf As part of our forthcoming strategy 2015 18 we will identify policy areas where we may be proactive and constructive advocates for improved dermatology
