New insights on skin and stem cell biology by using single-cell transcriptomics discussed by Prof. Maria Kasper (Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm)

Skin architecture and its function are determined by a rich variety of epithelial, mesenchymal and immune cells that together orchestrate skin homeostasis, including cyclical hair growth and barrier function. We generated a comprehensive molecular and spatial atlas of epithelial and stromal cells during hair growth and rest. These studies revealed underlying molecular programs during progenitor-cell commitment and lineage differentiation, as well as spatiotemporal fibroblast heterogeneity and potential epithelial-stromal interactions. Building on the molecular knowledge and computational skills gained, our ongoing work uncovers new insights in the molecular orchestration of embryonic hair follicle development, as well as the coordination of adult skin stem cell differentiation by tissue resident immune cells.
