Solidarity in Adversity
ESDR, through its newly formed Solidarity in Adversity committee, encourages all members of the ESDR and wider skin science community to support displaced scientists in zones of conflict. The committee’s current focus is on the war in Ukraine but the longer term goal is supporting colleagues wherever there is a need through war or other catastrophic event. The ESDR Board has approved an emergency fund to help finance these actions.
