Skin Research Group of Canada

Researchers and clinicians dedicated to improving skin health

Skin Research Group of Canada (SRGC) is represented by a consortium of new and established investigators across Canada working in basic and clinical research on skin disorders and diseases. SRGC is a non-profit organization promoting basic and clinical science related to skin biology and health.

By supporting skin research, the SRGC contributes towards improving the health of patients suffering from skin diseases by identifying novel preventative and therapeutic strategies. Applications of recent scientific advances have produced diagnostic and therapeutic innovations in dermatological/surgical practices, particularly in genetics, skin cancer, allergic skin disease, infectious disease and autoimmune diseases.

The SRGC facilitates exchange of information relevant to investigative dermatological sciences between clinicians and scientists in Canada and worldwide. One of the most important activities of our society is to promote the presentation of new research data and ideas at our annual scientific meetings and clinically oriented symposia. The SRGC organises educational events throughout the year to further knowledge in skin research. It also provides a forum for showcasing research by young investigators in the field and for fostering participation of skin patients alliance groups.

SRGC testimonials

"I am absolutely thrilled to be awarded the 'Calgary Firefighters Burn Treatment Society Oral Presentation Award' at SRGC2020. I was disappointed we couldn't be together in Ottawa as I had such a great time at SRGC2019 in Calgary, but the organizers did a fantastic job with the virtual event. Special thanks goes to the Skin Research Group of Canada as well as the Calgary Firefighters Burn Treatment Society"
