Skin Research Group of Canada
Researchers and clinicians dedicated to improving skin health

The Late abstract submission  for SRGC 2022 is now open!

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


Meital Yerushalmi

University of Toronto

I attended SRGC twice during my PhD and had a fantastic experience. SRGC presents a unique opportunity for trainees to not only engage in a scientific exchange with other dermatology investigators but also learn about relevant career avenues in the industry through designated sessions. Being jointly held with the Canadian Dermatology Association conference, SRGC offers extensive networking opportunities with dermatology scientists, clinicians, and industry professionals, and was instrumental in helping me bridge the gap toward my current role in industry. Thank you for organizing!
