TITLE: BUILDING CONNECTIONS WITHIN AND BEYOND DERMATOLOGY

27-29 October 2022, Valencia, Spain
Co-chairs: Sabine Eming, Enikö Sonkoly and Leopold Eckhart

The goal of this initiative is to encourage young gifted dermatologists to further pursue their academic careers through guidance and mentoring of established scientists in the field. Besides scientific sessions, there is a strong emphasis on encouraging young people to network and to exchange ideas. The Academy is an excellent opportunity for sponsoring companies to establish strong professional relationships with the next generation of leaders in dermatology.
