Enerbäck group


We maintain a journal club focused on the biology of skin. Main cell types include keratinocytes, fibroblasts, melanocytes and various other micro-anatomical tissue components (vasculature, glands and follicles).

The Journal club started in 2011 by the Kratz group, and is now a joint effort with the Enerbäck group. The Kratz group has special interests in toxicology, in vitro skin and cell- & tissue engineering. The Enerbäck group is interested in psoriasis biology and keratinocyte differentiation and malignancy. Other participants have similar interests in skin, and new members are welcome.


We discuss papers covering various skin-related topics so that we may learn about methods and cell biology that can further our own research. We also discuss formats and manuscript writing using the selected papers as examples.
