About North American Hair Research Society

The North American Hair Research Society (NAHRS) is a non-profit, voluntary organization whose members are clinical or basic science researchers who are committed to unraveling the causes and developing effective treatments for disorders of hair growth. Their mission is to strongly encourage and promote scientific research in the field of the normal and disordered hair growth; to promote dissemination of state of the art knowledge on hair biology and medical hair disorders; to promote interdisciplinary interaction between basic scientists and clinicians through regular meetings, publications and innovative communication; to establish links with other international hair research societies and to arrange combined meetings on a periodic basis; to educate both our colleagues and the public on hair biology and the pathophysiology and treatment of hair related conditions; and to create and maintain a database of hair disorders that will foster greater enhanced communication between bench scientists, clinicians, industry, patient support societies, lay public, government and managed care organizations.
