Research & Development

Since 1996, Coen Gho has carried out fundamental studies on cell cultures, plucked hair and biopted material. The results of one of these fundamental studies were published in the British Journal of Dermatology. In one of his fundamental studies he found follicular stem cell areas localized from the bulge area to lower third of the follicle from both skin biopsies and plucked hairs, and he did not find any follicular stem cells in or near the dermal papilla. These follicular stem cell areas can induce hair growth. This part was the fundamental basis for Hair Stemcell Transplantation. (This is also presented at the European Cytoskeleton Meeting)

He also found follicular stem cells in the culture of plucked anagen hairs. This was the fundamental basis of Hair Multiplication.
