Mount Sinai Skin Biology and Diseases Resource-Based Center (SBDRC)


The Mount Sinai Skin Biology and Diseases Resource-based Center (SBDRC) offers a variety of events, including research seminars and the New York Skin Club.

Research Seminars

SBDRC speakers are invited from inside and outside Icahn Mount SInai to present on a range of topics of interest to SBDRC members and relevant to the activities of the resource cores. This is a key mechanism to keep members abreast of the latest research developments and to stimulate new research directions and collaborations. While seminars are generally be on topics directly related to skin biology and diseases, we also invite speakers from other fields who can introduce new perspectives and concepts.
