Announcing the Keystone Symposia Conference on “Skin Health and Disease: Immune, Epithelial and Microbiome Crosstalk”

Organized by Drs. Michel Gilliet of University Hospital of Lausanne, Emma Guttmanof Mount Sinai Hospital, Anthony Oro of Stanford University and Manolis Pasparakis of the University of Cologne, the three-day conference will:

  • Present and discuss cutting-edge research on the role of the immune system, epithelial cells and skin microbiome, and crosstalk between these systems, with respect to skin health and its emerging importance in systemic health and disease defenses;
  • Review the newest technologies and experimental approaches for treating and preventing skin diseases;
  • Consider the future directions of the field, including the role immune-epithelial-microbiome crosstalk of the skin beyond the skin, in systemic diseases, and foster new collaborations among dermatologists, cancer biologists, immunologists, industrial researchers and other scientists.
