Hair today, gone tomorrow: the Biology of hair loss and greying

18:00 - 20:00, 13 December 2017

At Oastler Building

A Public Lecture by Dr Iain Haslam (University of Huddersfield)

Human hair has a number of diverse functions which, depending on location, can include protection against the sun, prevention of heat loss, aesthetics, blocking the entry of foreign matter and indicating sexual maturity. On the scalp, there are approximately 100,000 hairs, the density of which are highest at birth and steadily decline with age. Indeed, hair loss and hair greying are often associated with ageing, yet can occur for any number of reasons, independent of whether you are six or sixty.

This lecture will explore the reasons behind various forms of hair loss and greying, describing the latest biological research being performed here at The University of Huddersfield and elsewhere across the globe. Ultimately, the likelihood of one day being able to prevent both hair loss and greying will be discussed.

Please note new venue - this lecture takes place in the Oastler Building on the Queensgate Campus.

The lecture begins at 6.30pm with complimentary refreshments served from 6.00pm.
