Tissue engineering and Lyon’s expertise


In Lyon, dermocosmetology draws on the rich heritage of the silk industry in that raw materials are transformed in an innovative way thanks to life sciences. The field also benefits from the presence of world-class competitive biotechnology clusters based in Lyon, such as Lyonbiopôle, Axelera and Techtera.


Some of the main dermocosmetology research laboratories:



The European Center of Dermocosmetology (CED)


Ideal for creating a network of specialists, the CED’s main roles are: Promoting dermocosmetology nationally and internationally Organizing events to improve understanding of subjects relevant to the profession and the health sector Promoting interdisciplinary research projects with existing competitive clusters (biological, plastics, leather, textiles and chemical industries, etc.) Adapting instruction in dermocosmetology to the needs of the industry.
