Maryna Popis - University of Cambridge

Martyna Popis is a current PhD student at the University of Cambridge at the Centre of Stem Cell Research ( Laboratory of Epithelial Stem Cell Homeostasis and Cancer). Her research focuses on understanding and learning how to control skin stem cell regulation. This knowledge can bring us one step closer to treating genetic skin diseases and cancer. Moreover, Martyna is the Vice President of the Innovation Forum, a student run society that seeks to promote innovation by building bridges between academia, industry and government and linking innovative minds across disciplines.

The image shows keratinocytes, the outermost layer of cells in our skin. Skin acts as an amazing waterproof barrier that protects our bodies from the outside world. Our skin is constantly renewed as stem cells from the deep layers of the skin make new cells to replace the old dying ones.

The images show a cross section of hair follicles in different stages of hair growth. The blue areas - identify a protein that is needed for hair growth and is activated only in the growing hair.
This image shows a muscle layer in the subcutaneous tissue. Subcutaneous means beneath the skin. These muscles are embedded within the fatty subcutaneous layer and are attached to the skin but don't always have the bony attachment. Why do we need them? Because they produce movements of the skin. Without those muscles you wouldn't be able to frown or smile.
