Jörg Prinz, MD
Ludwig Maximilians University
Munich, Germany

Jörg C. Prinz is Full Professor of Dermatology and Venereology and Deputy Chair of the Clinic for Dermatology and Allergology of the Ludwig-Maximilian University (LMU) in Munich, Germany. Beyond his commitments in patient care and teaching at medical school his main research interest is in the analysis of the T-cell mediated immunopathogenesis of psoriasis and the identification of the target cells and autoantigens of psoriatic the pathogenic psoriatic immune response; he is also interested in developing novel therapies for T-cell mediated autoimmune disorders, and has been actively involved in preparing evidence-based guidelines for psoriasis treatment. He has published extensively in major peer-reviewed journals.

Francesca Capon, MD, PhD
Guy's Hospital
London, England, United Kingdom

Dr. Capon obtained a BSc in biological sciences (1992) and PhD in medical genetics (1999) from La Sapienza, University of Rome, Italy.  Her interest in the genetics of psoriasis brought her to the United Kingdom. She first moved to the University of Leicester as a Wellcome Trust Traveling Research Fellow (2001), then took on a Lectureship in human molecular genetics at University College London (2004). She joined King’s College London in 2006 as a lecturer, was promoted to senior lecturer in 2014, and to reader (associate professor) in 2018. Her main research interest is the genetic basis of psoriasis. In recent years, the Capon lab has been concentrating on two main research lines: the identification of disease genes in pustular forms of psoriasis and the role of interleukin-36 in the pathogenesis of pustular and plaque psoriasis. This research has been published in high-impact journals including the American Journal of Human Genetics, the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, and Science Translational Medicine.
