ESDR Kitchen

Welcome to the ESDR Kitchen!

Every second Wednesday at 13.30 (CET), we run a live, moderated webinar with one of the following themes:

  • The Recipe Book: New technologies and research techniques explained
  • Sweet and Sour: Two protagonists debate a hot topic
  • Freshly Baked: The latest high impact research findings
  • Molecular Cuisine: Discovery pathways from well-known leaders in investigative dermatology

A detailed schedule of future webinars can be found in the events calendar here.

Access to webinars is currently free but only 500 seats are available: please pre-register here. Registration is only required once for the ESDR Kitchen series.
