Registration for the 50th Anniversary ESDR Annual Meeting is open and you can benefit from early fees before 31 July 2021.

The annual scientific meeting of the ESDR is held each September in Europe. Every five years the ESDR joins a global dermatological research meeting known as International Societies for Investigative Dermatology (ISID) and does not hold its own event that year. The next ISID meeting takes place in Tokyo, May 2023.

The content of the annual ESDR meeting includes guest lectures from internationally recognised scientists, cutting-edge “frontier” talks in skin science, oral presentations from peer-reviewed abstracts, educational symposia on a wide-range of topics, electronic and paper presentations of posters and interactive workshop-type sessions. With an attendance of over 1000 delegates, ESDR annual meetings attract basic and clinical scientists from all over the world with an interest in dermatology to discover the latest lab-based, clinical, and translational research findings.
