The Skin Research Group of Сanada Conference Scientific Organizing Committee is delighted to invite you to the 2018 Annual Meeting in Montreal.
This year the SRGС for the first time will hold a joint meeting with the Canadian Dermatology Association (CDA), which will undoubtedly help bring Canadian basic science, translational and clinical skin research expertise under one roof. Our joint meeting will be equally beneficial to clinicians, basic scientists and industry partners engaged in skin disease research and will showcase world-class studies on psoriasis, eczema, skin cancer, autoimmune diseases, wound healing, skin regeneration and many other topics critical to our patients. At least 25 % of the conference time is dedicated to interactive sessions.
The focus of the meeting will be on jump starting collaborations and on knowledge translation. This meeting will help build critical connections between lab scientists, patient alliance/patient advocacy groups, clinicians and industry partners to answer critical questions to improve diagnosis and management of skin diseases.
Conference learning objectives:
Participants will get acquainted with molecular parthenogenesis for a number of skin diseases including psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, acne, vitiligo, scleroderma, epidermolysis bullosa, cutaneous lymphomas, melanoma, non-melanoma skin cancers and chronic wound healing.
Participants will be able to measure the impact of recent advances in research on these diseases and will be able to better differentiate how targeted therapies can be used to treat these conditions.
Participants will be able to evaluate the impact of these diseases on patients' daily life from patient support group presentations.
Participants will be able to define patients' priorities in skin research.
Participants will also be able to consider how future research on these conditions can improve their diagnosis and management.
We need your participation to make this meeting a success!
