Last month, Wheatley junior Rohan Gulati presented his research titled “Parathyroid hormone agonists linked to a collagen binding domain increase anagen hair follicles and reduce hair loss in mice with Alopecia areata” at the annual meeting of the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR) in Baltimore, Maryland.
Rohan is listed as second author on the abstract. The research focused on a promising new treatment of Alopecia areata (patchy hair loss) and showed that parathyroid hormone agonists attached to a collagen binding domain increased hair growth significantly in mice with the condition. Rohan and his research colleagues presented their work during an open poster session.
