Abstract Submission:

The Skin Research Group (SRG) represents a multidisciplinary group of new and established investigators from basic and clinical research disciplines, which are focused on skin repair, regeneration and restoration. The ultimate goal of the skin research group is to increase the capacity to perform research on skin disorders and diseases in Canada and to identify novel preventative and therapeutic strategies. An important component will also be to foster participation of patient alliance and advocacy groups.

The organizing committee is delighted to invite you to participate in this exciting initiative. An objective of the skin research group symposium 2017 is to identify priority research areas, ascertain patient and industry needs, and to develop partnerships. A concerted approach to harmonize efforts will facilitate research in the field and accelerate clinical applications while remaining competitive internationally. In addition to keynote lectures and the talks by patient support group representatives, as many presentations as possible by attendees will be included to maximize learning about the different research projects ongoing in the field of skin repair, regeneration and restoration in Canada.

We look forward to seeing you all on 17-18th of May in Montreal
