The Emerging Science of the Skin Microbiome and What it Means for Your Patients

Presented by: Kimberly A. Capone, PhD, Head, Microbiome Platform, Emerging Science & Innovation, Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc.

12:15 – 12:30 PM Check In & Lunch

12:30 – 1:00 PM Program

Program Description:

Microbial colonization of the human skin begins with the first significant exposure of birth. Proper establishment of a healthy skin microbiome plays an essential role in limiting access to harmful or infectious microbes and may also play a role in immune modulation. Microbiome imbalances (dysbiosis) can be associated with skin diseases, such as atopic dermatitis, and as such can impact the management of this inflammatory skin disease.   This presentation shares the latest research on the development of the skin microbiome in infancy and beyond and informs on the essential role of a healthy skin microbiome while providing practical advice on how to care for it that you can share with your patients.

Kimberly A. Capone, PhD, is a leading researcher studying the human skin microbiome, and particularly the infant skin microbiome, identifying new insights with potential to lead to innovative healthcare solutions.
