The PhD in Dermatology and Venereology at HUST is a 3 year PhD Program for international students taught in English.
The skin and the mucous membranes constitute our main protective interface against the environment and are highly dynamic organs with critical biological functions. Skin diseases are prevalent and include a wide range of disorders, some of which are among the most common diseases in our society such as eczema, psoriasis and skin cancer.
Dermatological research is facing similar challenges as other areas in biomedicine. While the genetic basis for several rare diseases have been unravelled during recent years, we still struggle to comprehend basic biology and pathology of the common diseases. Understanding underlying mechanisms will facilitate the development of more specific therapies and at best even cure, which is the ultimate goal of research. In recent years, we have experienced a promising development towards more powerful and targeted treatments in dermatology, a result of successful basic and clinical research in combination.
Venereology research is a core area ranging from clinical epidemiology to preclinical work on disease mechanisms and pathology. The epidemiology of venereal diseases is dynamic with profund implications in clinical medicine and this is an area with high potential for successful prevention with the development of effective vaccines.
