The bi-annual international meeting features the research carried out by physiologists, biochemists, dermatologists and pharmacologists working on skin, its components and functions, the pathologies which can affect it and specific methods of investigation.
Following the success of the previous three Skin Physiology meetings, this year's gathering will once again take place in Vichy from November 20-21st.
Attendees are also invited to present the results of their work in skin research in the form of posters which will be displayed around the room, the winner of which will win a €4,000 prize.
Greentech will award two of the best, most original and detailed bodies of work:
- The SPIM Junior Scientist 2014, €15,000 for the best oral presentation among the nine junior scientists selected and invited by the scientific committee.
- The Best SPIM poster 2014, will receive €4,000 that rewards, after a vote by the attendants, the best poster presented during the congress.
According to organisers of the event, the objective of all presentations from experts and junior researchers is to encourage cross-collaboration between researchers of various disciplines involved in studying skin and metabolic interactions which take place in normal functioning and disorders.
