SCC National CEP Course - Utilizing Omics In Skin Care - Simplifies

Registration Link: CLICK HERE

Course Location: Philadelphia, PA

Dr. Nava Dayan LLC - Organizer and Moderator
Speakers: Rebecca Gadberry, Matt Kuruc and Tracy Shafizadeh, Ph.D.

“Omics” is a general term to the collection, characterization, structure-function relationships delving into the pools of biological markers and studying their behavior.

Our skin; as a compartmentalized organ connecting between the environment and our bodies is responsible for countless reactions managed concurrently responsible for functions such as regeneration, innate and acquired immunization, physical, chemical and biological protection, sensation and overall behavior.

In recent decade’s newest discoveries and methodologies gave rise to an exciting field that allows acquiring information in understanding of biochemical cascades and their relationships to health, disease and aging. From genomics that is observing changes in DNA and its expressions, through proteomics that is further analyzing proteins levels and their functions to metabolomics that is studying the entire metabolites assembly under specific conditions including the set of epigenetic markers.

This whole day workshop is aimed to bring experts in the field to present this research in a simple, practical manner and relate it to skin care product development.

9:00-10:15
Nava Dayan Ph.D.; President; Dr. Nava Dayan L.L.C- Genomics vs Proteomics – Advantages and Limitations

The Epigenome: Master of the Genome
Rebecca Gadberry, Senior Instructor & Program Director, Cosmetic Sciences, Department of Humanities, Sciences, Social Sciences and Health Sciences, UCLA Extension

UV, diet, drugs, tobacco, alcohol, ecotoxicants, emotional stress, exercise and cosmetic ingredients are among a number of factors now being proven to trigger chemical influences on gene expression without changing the genes themselves. Known as the “epigenome” – the master of the genome – these changes in genetic expression can occur in seconds, yielding positive or negative impact on the organism – activating stem cells, up-regulating the production of such proteins as sirtuins and collagens, building muscle, triggering diseases like cancer and diabetes and initiating cellular aging. This TED®-style presentation – that received the Henry Maso Award from the National Society of Cosmetic Chemists in 2014 – will:
•Offer a simplified discussion of the epigenome as it relates to genomics and proteomics.
•Review the two most common types of epigenetic mechanisms – methyl groups and histone modification.
•Provide insight into FDA’s current position on epigenetic claims.
•Present several ingredients believed to function via epigenetic mechanisms.
•Discuss the implications of this emerging and exciting field of research for the cosmetic chemist.

About the Instructor:
Rebecca Gadberry is a dynamic, highly acclaimed educator and forty-year veteran of the cosmetics industry. Senior instructor and program director for the Cosmetic Sciences program at UCLA Extension since 1986, Rebecca has developed over 1300 skin, hair and body care products sold in the professional, medical, on-air, direct and natural product channels for indie, niche, established and start-up brands sold nationally and globally.

Matt Kuruc Vice President of Business Development at Biotech Support Group - New Functional & Chemical Proteomics Methods and Strategies

Functional proteomics supports the characterization of proteomes derived in part from functional orstructural features of intact, non-denatured proteins, rather than by differential expression alone. Biotech Support Group has developed surface chemistries and separations strategies to untangle proteome complexity without compromising protein functional integrity. We present key applications for these functional and chemical proteomic strategies.

Exploring the Metabolome Effectively to Advance Skincare Research

The architecture of human skin is complex and each layer possesses a metabolic signature with a unique composition and function. Metabolomic analysis of skin elucidates biochemical changes associated with and is crucial to understanding various skin conditions, i.e. acne, atopic dermatitis and aging. Global and focused metabolomic assessment of sebum, stratum corneum, skin biopsy, cell culture and reconstructed skin models allows us to understand the unique biochemical composition and regulation of the skin metabolome and provides insight into biomarker identification, response to intervention, and the development of therapeutic and skin care products across a variety of skin conditions.
