Sobia Kauseris an Associate Professor in Biomedical Science and holds a BSc and PhD from theUniversity of Bradford.Sobia'scurrent research focuses on the biology of skin with particular interest in thehair follicle. The hair follicle provides an excellent opportunity toinvestigate a highly accessible and interactive system of neuro-ectodermal andmesenchymal cells (keratinocytes, melanocytes and fibroblasts) and their diversesub-populations in the skin. Sobia's research has focussed on the role of pomcpeptides in the skin and hair follicle pigmentation and in melanocyte ageing.My current researchinterests lie in keratoacanthoma a spontaneously regressing skin tumour andusing the hair follicle as a model system to study this. Other areas ofinterest include characterisation of the dermal melanocyte sub-population andthere potential role in melanoma development.My teachingand departmental responsibilities include; Deputy Programme Leader for BiomedicalScience, School Equality, Diversity and Inclusion lead and LSP champion and Year 2 Tutor. I am also module leader forDeveloping Professional Skills 2 and Pathology.
