Q: The question is related to the topic NMP.2011.2.2-2 Biomaterials for tissue engineering for age-related cancer and sensory organ diseases Are skin diseases within the scope of the topic ?
A: Not every skin disease is within the scpe of the topic. It is important to bear in mind that skin has several functions including, but not limited to sensory functions. Topic NMP.2011.2.2-2 addresses cancer diseases and sensory organ diseases related to old age. Consequently, skin diseases are within the scope of the topic if they are (i) skin cancers related to old age or (ii) other skin diseases that are related to old age and that primarily affect the skin in its capacity as a sensory organ. The same consideration applies to other organs that have multiple functions including sensory functions.
