Industry partners


We thank our Industry Partners for their support of annual ESDR meetings and ESDR educational programs.

By supporting ESDR activities your company shows commitment to research in dermatology and to the ESDR’s mission to support skin science.


The annual scientific meeting of the ESDR is held each September in Europe. Every 5 years the annual ESDR meeting becomes tricontinental (ISID meeting) and is held in collaboration with the Society for Investigative Dermatology, the Japanese Society for Investigative Dermatology, the Korean Society for Investigative Dermatology and the Taiwanese Society for Investigative Dermatology. The next ISID meeting will be held in 2028.

The content of the annual ESDR meeting includes guest lectures from internationally renowned scientists, cutting-edge talks in skin science, oral presentations from peer-reviewed abstracts, educational symposia on a wide-range of relevant topics in dermatology, industry sponsored symposia and electronic posters presentation. With an attendance of about 1200 participants, ESDR meetings attract basic and clinical scientists with an interest in skin research to discover the latest lab-based, clinical and translational research findings.

The ESDR Academy for Future Leaders in Dermatology (FLA) was launched for the first time in 2011. The FLA brings together highly gifted young scientists and renowned senior scientists from dermatological departments all over Europe and beyond for a 2.5-day meeting. Applications are reviewed on scientific merit by the ESDR Scientific Program Committee.

The goal of this initiative is to encourage excellent young 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 attendees to network and to exchange ideas with their peers and mentors.


Opportunity to be part of a unique educational program targeting future leaders and rising stars in dermatology.

In recent years alumni from the FLA have shown a growing interest in participating in a Leadership and Mentoring program.

To meet the unmet needs for these rising stars in dermatology the ESDR has launched a personalised course in leadership development in collaboration with the Alliance Manchester Business School.

The aim of the program is to introduce frameworks for effective management and leadership in the healthcare context, to analyse and strengthen participants’ interpersonal, informational and decision-making skills.


Opportunity to support a new educational program on leadership in dermatology.
