The figure below shows an update of all our research projects. All of the projects consist of several studies, often ongoing simultaneously. The PhD-projects are marked according to the description below the figure. For an augmented picture, click on the figure. In 2018 two students connected to our department defended their theses. Dr. Ewa Young based her thesis on contact allergy to the black hair dye substance paraphenylenediamine (PPD). Her dissertation covers both basic knowledge regarding the chemical process in hair dying and studies to increase knowledge on how hairdressers optimally protect themselves. The dentist Liv Kroona presented her thesis in 2018, with a collaboration between the dental university in Malmö and YMDA. In her dissertation she studied carvone, a flavouring agent present in many toothpastes that can cause contact allergy. In her dissertation she showed the importance of patients with contact allergy to carvone avoiding the allergen. The results of the research at YMDA have been presented both nationally and internationally.
