The second approach to the management of leucoderma focuses on repigmentation therapies. Common therapies are of three types: The topical application of potent corticosteroids, (PUVA) psoralen photochemotherapy and surgical therapies. Of these interventions PUVA is considered the most effective treatment available in the United States, however the treatments are time-consuming, side effects can be severe, 4 and complete repigmentation only occurs in 15-20%. 5 Interestingly, psoralens used with photochemotherapy are obtained from the ancient Ayurvedic herb known as Vakuchi (psoralea corylifolia). 
The research center consists of a geoengineering research center for research and development work in collaboration with industry and academia and three specially designed, fully integrated laboratories for testing and evaluating rocks and fluids in controlled environments. In addition, the research center hosts a geoengineering technology center for developing end-to-end geosciences and geoengineering workflows using the Ocean application development framework and Petrel seismic-to-simulation software. It also hosts a WesternGeco GeoSolutions Hub that provides seismic data integration-optimized solutions to address specific regional challenges. The center has 10,000 m2 of office, laboratory, and conference space and staffing capacity for 300 people.
