10th EADV Dermatological Meeting in Ticino on November 29, 2018

on Monday, October 29, 2018

In addition to the celebration of the 30th anniversary of the EADV in 2017, we are also delighted to reach another milestone in 2018 - one decade from the first Dermatological Meeting in Ticino, the region where the EADV has its headquarters.

Thanks to the dynamic support and constructive collaboration that the Academy receives from both the local Swiss Italian Dermatology Society and the Swiss Society of Dermatology and Venereology, it has been able to offer this free, one day-conference, open to all local dermatologists and basic researchers, every year since 2009.

The meeting will take place at the internationally renowned Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB) in Bellinzona, the capital of Canton Ticino, that lies at the foot of the Alps. The IRB offers a unique scientific environment and represents one of the most productive and innovative research centres in human immunology in Switzerland and worldwide.

The EADV selected this perfect setting to discuss and focus on different dermatology specialties: from cellular and immunological developments to diagnostic and therapeutic approaches.

The programme starts with a basic research session in the morning that includes the latest development in distinct fields, such as immunology of the skin, involving researchers from the IRB and the various Departments of Dermatology in Switzerland and is then followed by a clinically-oriented section in the afternoon, featuring distinguished experts with recognised experience in their fields.

The aim of the meeting is two-fold: the first one is to provide an excellent educational opportunity and to strengthen the partnership between local Swiss dermatologists and their neighbouring colleagues from the best Italian university centres from Northern Italy. The second aim is to encourage medical progress and co-operation between researchers and clinicians.

This joint meeting has been instrumental in the past in triggering new and productive collaborations with scientific exchange, common research grants and publications. The EADV has been proudly able to offer fruitful educational programmes and initiatives promoting high quality patients’ management and research so much in Europe as in Ticino.

The Dermatology Society of Ticino, the Dermatology Department of the Ente Ospedaliero Cantonale, the Institute for Research in Biomedicine, together with the EADV are pleased to announce this joint project taking place on 29 November and will be happy to welcome you there.

An opportunity to exchange experiences and share approaches in our daily work!
