Dr. Julio César Salas Alanís’ professional recognition is not only reflected in his academic and research experience, which includes more than 300 articles, 100 of them in indexed journals, and more than 3,000 citations of his published articles, but also in his professional trajectory and performance during these years dedicated to dermatological care and treatment, especially for those related to the issues presented by patients with genetic diseases such as dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa, for which he has received various local, national, and international awards. This includes an award given by former Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto in 2016, as well as being featured on the cover of the International Society of Dermatology’s magazine for his support during 30 years as a volunteer for his own association.

Salas is recognized worldwide for his work on genetics and skin, highlighting research on «Butterfly Skin» children, «werewolf» individuals with Congenital Universal Hypertrichosis, Ectodermal Dysplasias, among others. Currently, he is on the verge of finding the gene that causes the disease known as «STIGMATA,» which is a condition where people cry and sweat blood. He is convinced that in 2023, he will find the mutated gene that causes this disease, which is classified as a religious manifestation by the Church.

He has received an award for his work in the «Butterfly Skin» children foundation, which supports children with incurable diseases, given by former President of Mexico Enrique Peña Nieto. His work here was so important that the international dermatology magazine featured him on the cover as a person who has notably changed the lives of patients with this disease.

On the other hand, in addition to establishing three research laboratories in the three most important universities in northern Mexico, including the Autonomous University of Nuevo Leon, Tec Salud in Monterrey, and recently the University of Monterrey, he worked as a researcher at prestigious universities such as Yale (where he worked as a visiting dermatologist professor from 2012 to 2013), Columbia, Stanford, Jefferson, and more.
