Ignacio Umbert

CEO at Barcelona Skin Genomic

Spain · BarcelonaJoined March 2016


Barcelona Skin Genomic is a company dedicated to personalize treatments for patients who suffer from various skin deases such as: psoriasis, atopic dermatitis and acne. It also performs customized treatments for skin rejuvenation, alopecia, etc.

At present, BSG carries out skin biopsies. The epidermis and dermis are separated using Lase Capture Microdissection (LCM) for subsequent genomic study. Expression microarrays are used to observe differences between different types of samples, whether control skin or damaged skin. Subsequently, BSG manufactures a compound cream formulation based on the results obtained. Once the treatment is completed, a second biopsy is carried out to access the effect the formulation has had on the patient’s skin.
