2020 Society for Investigative Dermatology (SID) Annual Meeting, May 13-16, Scottsdale, AZ   

Why should you come to the SID Meeting? Join 1700 colleagues to explore the cutting edge of skin research. Clinicians and researchers will hear about what others in their field and related disciplines are doing, talk with colleagues from different institutions around the world, and learn about new research, tools, and techniques relevant to their work.               

The 78th annual Society for Investigative Dermatology (SID) Annual Meeting will feature approximately 1200 abstracts providing attendees with access to cutting edge research over the course of the four-day meeting. The SID community maintains a unique focus on skin health and disease. As the most accessible organ system, research content presented during the SID meeting includes Dermatology, Immunology, Inflammation & Cutaneous Oncology research submissions, to provide extensive insight into serious diseases and their co-morbidities. 

The scientific program includes 15 mini symposia that will present a focused collection of 12 unique presentations on each featured abstract category. Presenters include MD, PhD Academic and Industry scientists, and nearly 400 presentations on all aspects of Clinical Research and the latest trials. Together, the program will provide novel insight into the sub-phenotypes of disease, offering enhancement of the selection of therapeutics that are likely to be effective for an individual patient-truly personalized medicine.

The SID is recognized as the premier forum for collaboration, dissemination and exchange of skin research, with a significant portion of abstracts covering Autoimmunity, Inflammation and Cutaneous Oncology, along with important research on Rare Diseases. 

This global SID 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.  

The opportunity to interact with scientists who possess complementary knowledge, and present cutting-edge therapies has produced countless productive collaborations over the decades. As partners, we can advance our common goal of translating cutting-edge scientific discoveries into novel treatment of disease.

Skin biology includes many biological processes: development, perpetual differentiation and barrier maintenance, stem cell biology, tissue repair and regeneration, neogenesis, native and adapted immunity, and genetic disorders just to name a few. The areas represented in the diverse program include data on aging, microbiology, inflammation, immunology, genomics, pharmacology, biochemistry, cell and stem cell biology as well as significant coverage of clinical research, including clinical trials, wound healing and regenerative medicine.
