The SRGC Conference Scientific Organizing Committee is delighted to invite you to the 2020 Virtual Meeting, which will undoubtedly help bring together Canadian basic science, translational and clinical skin research expertise.
Our 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.
The focus of the meeting is to promote translational research within our research community. This meeting will help build critical connections among basic researchers, patient alliance/patient advocacy groups, clinicians, and industry partners to address critical questions to facilitate diagnosis and management of skin diseases.
Our invited keynote speakers will provide state-of-the-art lectures on major aspects of skin biology. Dr. Michael Underhill, (Univ. of British Columbia) and Dr. Jeff Biernaskie, (Univ. of Calgary) will discuss the contribution of mesenchymal progenitor cells in tissue repair, while Dr. Pierre Coulombe (Univ. of Michigan Medical School) will present data describing the role of keratins in skin homeostasis, wound healing and disease and Dr Edward Tredget (Univ. of Alberta) will outline novel strategies to treat hypertrophic scars in burn victims.
Make your plans to join us virtually in this celebration of Canadian skin research.
We need your participation to make this meeting a success!
