Dr Paus’ laboratory (Paus Lab) focuses on the biology and pathology of human hair follicles, covering a wide range of topics from hair growth control, pigmentation, neuroendocrinology, neurobiology and immunology of the hair follicle via the pathobiology of alopecia areata, lichen planopilaris, and frontal fibrosing alopecia to novel management strategies for chemotherapy-induced alopecia and hair graying. The laboratory also investigates skin neuroendocrinology and neuroimmunology, and the biology and pathology of epithelial stem cells residing in human skin as well as regulators of human skin wound healing.
