2018 Cutaneous Biology


On behalf of the Australasian Wound and Tissue Repair Society (AWTRS), the Molecular & Experimental Pathology Society of Australasia (MEPSA) and the Australasian Society for Dermatology Research (ASDR) we invite you to be part of our first ever joint meeting on cutaneous biology. This meeting will provide a significant forum for the exchange of new data and will provide an update on the progress and application of cutting edge materials and technologies for skin biology, tissue pathology, wound healing and repair. The organising committee has put together an exciting and comprehensive program that incorporates both basic and clinical research on tissue repair and regeneration as well as photobiology and skin cancer providing a valuable forum for scientists and clinicians to discuss the latest advances, tools and technologies in this area.

The conference will contain a mixture of oral and poster presentations, with prizes offered by each society for the best oral and best poster presentation by our Early Career Researchers. The program includes all major aspects of cutaneous biology including:

- Wound repair
- Photobiology and Skin cancer
- Tissue engineering
- Vitamin D biology
- Inflammation 
- Stem cells
- Cutaneous Biology

The University of Queensland Research Station at Stradbroke Island, just off the coast of Brisbane, provides a stunning location with an intimate feel about the conference allowing delegates and sponsors to interact throughout the days. There will be a number of Early Career Researcher events taking place during the meeting and for all delegates the final evening will be a conference dinner.

We look forward to your support and to seeing you in October 2018.
