Wound Repair and Tissue Healing Through Inflammation

  March 27, 2012  
CfPA - The Center for Professional Advancement, 90 Minute Accredited Online Training
May 24, 2012 at 11:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m. (ET)

Who Should Attend
Professional who have interest in would healing, skin inflammation and inflammatory disorders and skin aging. Industries of interest:

  • Pharmaceutical 
  • Cosmetics and personal care 
  • Medical devices 
  • Regulatory organizations

Inflammation is a biochemical and cellular process that occurs in vascularized tissues and therefore most of the essential components of the inflammatory process are found in the circulation. The key to the understanding of the inflammatory process is to recognize it as a path to healing. We often fail to do so since the process involved discomfort, pain and is also thought to accelerate aging. However this entire process is aimed to resolution. This resolution is actually the restoration of the original structure and physiological function of the cell, the tissue and the organ. It involves accelerated mitosis to replace dead cells and in cases when cell turnover is slow- to form blood clots or granulomas to fill in gaps. This 90 minute accredited online course will describe the fundamental biochemical cascades involved in inflammation as part of wound healing and explain why it is thought to be essential for full recovery of function.

Organized by: CfPA - The Center for Professional Advancement
Invited Speakers: Dr. Nava Dayan, Skin Care Research Expert

Dr. Nava Dayan earned her Ph.D. in Pharmaceutics from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem specializing in skin delivery. She is currently an Associate Adjunct Professor in the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy at Rutgers University, and the Research and Development and Safety Assessment Director at Lipo Chemicals Inc. During her 24 years of experience she has specialized in a variety of areas related to skin treatment:

  • The research and understanding of the interaction between topically applied compounds
    and the skin
  • Findings in skin biochemistry and especially the upper layer of the skin- the stratum 
  • Delivery of active compounds into and through the skin and the development of delivery 
    systems to facilitate transport, improve bio-availability and reduce toxicity
  • Design and development of topically applied formulations
  • Design of clinical studies to substantiate market claims and to assure safety
  • Academic teaching and lecturing
  • Industrial experience in both development of active compounds, delivery systems and 
    finished formulations
  • Skin absorption studies in vivo and in vitro for safety/ efficacy assessment
  • In vitro methodologies for safety assessment of topically applied compounds

Dr. Dayan has received numerous awards of excellence for various papers she has authored. A technology developed by Dr. Dayan is the recipient of the Gold Award for Innovation at the 2011 In Cosmetics European Show. She is the author and co-author more than 150 publications including book chapters and was granted 8 patents. She is also the editor of the “Skin Aging Hand Book” published by Elsevier; “Innate Immunity of Skin and Oral Mucosa” Book co-edited with Prof. Philip Wertz, “Formulating Skin Care with Natural Products” Book co-edited with Dr. Lambros Kromidas; both published by Wiley and sons. Dr. Dayan is a member of the Dermatopharmaceutics Focus Group, and the Abstract Review Committee for the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS). She is serves as the Educational Chair of the NYSCC Chapter and on the Scientific Advisory Board of Health Beauty America Expo and the Center for Dermal Research at the Center for Biomaterials. Dr. Dayan teaches at Rutgers University and is the Director of a variety of courses at the Center for Professional Advancement.
