About the Scholar: Hui Lan grew up in China and attended the International School of Beijing in Beijing, China
Acne is not only a skin disease but also a social liability that can lead adolescents to social withdrawal and thoughts of suicide. Expensive and possibly ineffective topical or medical treatments can be a financial burden for families. Pioneer scholar Hui Lan wondered if there might be a connection between severe cases of acne and the gut microbiome, but found that this possible connection had not yet been studied. Her paper proposes a mouse experiment to try to determine if there is an interrelationship between adolescent hormones, the composition of the gut microbiome, and the expression of acne.
Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.
