EADV/ESDR Summer Research Workshop: Skin Microbiota

There is emerging evidence for a role of commensal skin microbiota in maintaining skin health and how alterations may drive skin diseases. In this course we will explain these physiological and pathophysiological mechanisms and provide practical training to learn how to harvest and analyze the human skin microbiota.

Where

Lausanne, Switzerland

Terms

EADV/ESDR Resident courses are for dermatology and venereology residents (both EADV members, ESDR members and non-members).

Selected candidates will receive free registration and the educational material which was presented during the course. EADV/ESDR also offers accommodation, catering and a social event during the course.

EADV/ESDR members will benefit from an educational grant, to be eligible for the grant annual membership dues must be settled one month prior to the course.

The selection of candidates is made based on CVs, year of residency and the amount of courses previously attended.

The registration deadline will close at 23h59 (GMT+1) the day before the registration deadline (ex: registration deadline 31 January 2000 – the registrations will close on 30 January 2000 at 23h59).
