Dior and Japan’s CiRA to collaborate on skin metabolism research project

LVMH Recherce, on behalf of Dior, and the Center for induced Pluripotent Stem (iPS) Cell Research and Application (CiRA) at Kyoto University, have announced that they are to collaborate on a research project exploring how oxidative metabolism affects skin keratinocyte self-renewal.

The CiRA lab will provide iPS cells from healthy, elderly donors and expertise in genome editing and the duo will investigate the effects of age on mitochondrial status, skin regeneration and differentiation with the hope of contributing to major therapeutic discoveries in the skin and cutaneous rejuvenation.

A partnership with the leading center for iPS research, headed up by Nobel Prize winning Shinya Yamanaka, is a major sign of recognition for Dior Science; CiRA, meanwhile, has a keen interest in the Dior Scientists’ latest discoveries in stem cells in the cutaneous domain.
