Eduardo Perez, Signum University, USA
Eduardo Perez is Chief Scientific Officer (CSO)of Signum Biosciences. Dr. Perez has 11+ years of R&D experience in the biotech industry with expertise in the fields of dermatological inflammatory disorders, consumer product and nutritional supplement development and a firm knowledge of neurodegenerative diseases. As CSO, Dr. Perez guides cross-functional teams to select novel compounds for dermatological drug development and cosmetic applications. In addition, under the direction of Edwardo, Signum has developed and out-licensed numerous dermatological technologies which are now included in several products globally and/or are currently in human Phase II clinical trials for rosacea and atopic dermatitis. Prior to joining Signum, he received his PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of NJ (UMDNJ) studying the role of reversible methylation in bacterial signaling systems. He received his BA in Biology from Rutgers University.

Kan Wu, Zhuhai Xiguang General Clinic,, China
I’m a registered physician and dermatologist from China and have been studying and practicing in the Institute of Dermatology, Peking Union Medical College and Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences since 2009. Gained China Dermatologist Association Dermatopathology Subspecialty Board certification as a dermatopathologist in 2013. Though young, yet under heavy clinical workload in China and aided by a pathological knowledge background, I’m well trained and experienced in dealing with from simple acne scars to a variety of orphan skin diseases such as granulomatous slack skin, focal dermal hypoplasia, stiff skin syndrome, epidermodysplasia verruciformis, etc. I’m also specialized in diagnosing and treating nail diseases, was invited to lecture on this topic at the 9th Annual Meeting of China Dermatologist Association & National Congress of Cosmetic Dermatology with the famous nail disease expert Prof. Robert Baran lectured in the same parallel session. I participated in the phase III clinical trial of Vorinostat in mycosis fungoides as a clinical research associate (CRA), which was a tough and unforgettable experience. I'm glad to board my working experience working as an Editorial Board Member if possible, though I only did serve as a viewer for 5 papers from journal Clinical and Experimental Dermatology and Dermatologic Therapy. Attached is my CV and two PDFs containing a variety of diseases I diagnosed or treated, focused on my pathological knowledge background, just to elucidate my comparability to U.S domestic trained dermatologists. Please forward them to a concerned person.
