Professor W. Rachidi's team is developing research aimed in particular at discovering new early biomarkers of skin cancer in order to identify people at risk. The endowment from the "Jetons le cancer" association will enable the acquisition of a solar simulator capable of mimicking the sun's rays to irradiate skin organoids.
Skin cancer, one of the most common cancers in the world, claims the lives of 20,000 Europeans every year, and at least 100 to 200 times as many are treated surgically. Exposure to the sun results in highly mutagenic DNA damage, caused by UV radiation. However, if detected at an early stage, skin cancer is virtually 100% treatable. The challenge is therefore to discover new early biomarkers of skin cancer to better identify those at risk.
