Interviews from the Symposium on Hidradenitis Suppurativa Advances Annual Meeting
PeDRA had the privilege of attending the Symposium on Hidradenitis Suppurativa Advances (SHSA) in Phoenix, AZ in October 2023. During the meeting, PeDRA’s Associate Director of Educational Programs interviewed three amazing presenters to discuss the incredible work being done in this space. First up is Lynn Petukhova, PhD, discussing her ground-breaking work in Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) genetics and how she harnesses the power of genome-wide association studies (GWAS). Following this, you’ll gain insight into more HS research through two poster interviews with MD candidates Nicholas Chiang and Sydney Dong, respectively. For more information on Dr. Petukhova’s work, or to submit a case study, please visit the Columbia University Data Science Institute. SHSA is an annual meeting organized by the Hidradenitis Suppurativa Foundation (HSF) to bring experts from around the world to share their experiences with HS.
