Harvard researcher wants to understand how nerves interact with psoriasis lesions

The Nervous System And Psoriasis: Lorena Riol Blanco’s research, funded by a National Psoriasis Foundation Discovery Grant, will be the first to examine the nervous system’s role in psoriasis.

By inducing inflammation similar to psoriasis in the skin of mice, Blanco hopes to learn how molecules in the nervous system react at the site of psoriasis lesions.

Blanco, a native of Spain, finished her doctorate at the Spanish National Research Council in Madrid before coming the U.S., where she did her first post-doctoral training in the study of the role of the immune system in multiple sclerosis.
