Annika Vogt

PD Dr. Annika Vogt is Head of the Center of Pediatric Dermatology, Hair Diseases and Rare Diseases as well as Acting Director of the Clinical Research Center for Hair and Skin Science, Department of Dermatology, Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin. Since 2013 she holds a research professorship at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France. Targeted delivery of molecules into the hair follicle and innovative topical treatment strategies are main areas of research with special focus on experimental and early-phase clinical trials. She is project leader in national and European projects on nanocarrier-based dermatotherapy and transcutaneous immune cell targeting. Dr. Vogt attended Medical School and conducted an experimental thesis in the field of oxidative stress at Heinrich Heine University Duesseldorf and Free University Berlin. During a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of California San Francisco (2001-02) she explored novel therapeutic approaches against basal cell carcinomas in genetically predisposed mice. Since 2003 she received clinical training in dermatology at the Charité, Dept. of Dermatology, with special focus on hair disorders, pediatric dermatology and rare diseases, and built up the experimental work group “Transcutaneous Targeting” in the CRC. Targeted delivery of molecules into the hair follicle and innovative topical treatment strategies are main areas of research. She is project leader in the Collaborative Research Center SFB1112 “Nanocarriers”, the DFG priority project “Bio-Nano-Responses”, and in EU-projects on transcutaneous vaccination (CUT’HIVAC, MuNanoVac). She is co-inventor of a patented strategy to utilize preferred particle penetration into hair follicles for transcutaneous vaccination.
