11th EADV Dermatological Meeting in Ticino - 21 November 2019

on Thursday, October 3, 2019

It’s time to meet again in Bellinzona, city of magnificent castles and strategic crossroads of the alpine routes connecting the Latin and German worlds.

What better place to host a dermatology day whose programme connects scientific research and clinical practice in a variety of capturing presentations? The  medieval charm and the strong sense of intimacy of the city creates the ideal environment for a friendly meeting to share opinions and experiences on daily dermatology practice topics.

Since 2009, the one day-conference is free and open to all dermatologists and basic researchers active on the territory.

This was possible thanks to the dynamic support and constructive collaboration between the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology, the local Swiss Italian Dermatology Society, the Swiss Society of Dermatology and Venereology, and the Institute for Research in Biomedicine.

The meeting will take place at the IRB, that represents one of the leading research centres in human immunology in Switzerland and worldwide and offers a unique scientific environment.

This is the perfect setting to discuss and focus on different dermatology specialties: from cellular and immunological developments to diagnostic and therapeutic approaches.

The programme will start in the morning with a basic research session, including the latest achievements in cell trafficking to the skin in inflammation and tumour. It will be presented by researchers from the IRB, the University of Bern and the ETH Zurich.

A clinically-oriented section will follow in the afternoon and will address some important and controversial issues in pediatric dermatology such as the management of atopic dermatitis, atypical melanocytic lesions, psoriasis as well as sun-induced disorders in pediatric age. Additional hot topics related to the adult age will also be explored, such as auto-inflammatory diseases and rosacea. The topics will be presented by an expert panel of dermatologists both from Switzerland and Italy.

The aim of the meeting is on one side to provide an excellent educational opportunity and the possibility to strengthen the partnership between local Swiss dermatologists and their neighbouring Italian colleagues, and on the other side to encourage medical progress and co-operation between researchers and clinicians.

We look forward to meeting you there!
