The Mission of the Society for Investigative Dermatology (SID) is to advance and promote scientific evidence relevant to skin health and disease through education and scholarly exchange of scientific information, with the intent to foster improvement in the competence (abilities, skills and strategies) of dermatology researchers and clinicians.
The 78th Annual Meeting of the SID is a forum in which a diverse community of scientists comes to exchange information on the latest advances. The Annual Meeting draws a diverse group of senior researchers and clinicians, as well as hundreds of clinical trainees including Dermatology residents. These healthcare professionals and basic researchers are on the frontline for recognizing systemic disease (including many types of cancer) with a skin-related association.
In addition, presentations represent a diversity of specialties and disciplines, including Dermatology, Oncology, Cell Biology, Genetics, Pathology, Immunology, and Inflammation (to name a few). The opportunity to interact with scientists who possess complementary knowledge, and present cutting edge therapies has produced countless productive collaborations over the decades. In addition to the direct scientific goals, elements of the meeting are designed for the training and career development of young investigators. There are many social opportunities that enable all attendees to engage in the collegiality that serves as the foundation of the Society.
