Learning objectives

1 ANATOMY AND SKIN PATHOPHYSIOLOGY: the course aims to provide the basic elements of the anatomy and pathophysiology of the skin. The fundamentals of macroscopic and microscopic anatomy of the skin, mucous membranes and adnexal structures will be covered. The main functions of the skin will be addressed, including the communication, sensorial and defensive (physical, mechanical, immunological, metabolic, microbiological) function. The physiological mechanisms leading to the formation of the epidermal barrier, the maintenance of epithelial homeostasis, melanogenesis, skin lipidomics, the skin's immune system, the sensory nervous system and thermoregulation will be described. The main pathophysiological mechanisms of inflammatory, degenerative and neoplastic skin diseases will be described, in order to create a link with the notions on biological mechanisms learned in previous courses. At the end of the course, the student will be able to properly describe the structures of the skin and its main physiological and pathophysiological mechanisms.

Examination methods: oral to verify the overall degree of knowledge of the subject of this course.

2. PRODUCTS FOR SKIN HEALTH: the course aims to address the different aspects of the relationship between nutrition and skin pathophysiology. Cutaneous diseases associated with nutrition alterations will be described, in particular skin disorders deriving from global, vitamin and oligo-element deficiencies and excesses will be treated. The characteristics of the skin microbiota, dysbioses and their relationship with food will be described. The role of nutraceuticals in the physiology of the skin and in the main skin diseases (i.e. acne, rosacea, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and urticaria) will be analyzed. At the end of the course, the student will be able to properly describe the basics underlying the association between nutrition and skin health.

Examination methods: oral to verify the overall degree of knowledge of the subject of this course.
