Skin-omics: exploring the volatile organic compounds on human skin

Skin is the largest organ of the human body. Its importance in health has only just begun to be investigated. There are hundreds of compounds on the skin surface, and they have the potential to answer many questions. These compounds can be used for diagnosis, monitoring pollutant exposure, and for understanding the skin microbiome.

Professor Richard Easther from Physics Department has been asking questions about the universe for more than 20 years. He’s uncovered just as many new questions as answers in that time. “The universe is continually making space between the galaxies,” says Easther. “The explosion that started our universe is still making space today.”
