Important Meeting Information:

More than 120 clinicians, researchers, government leaders and patient advocacy representatives will gather to discuss study ideas, hear updates on collaborative projects already launched, and learn about best practices in multicenter research and novel approaches in basic and translational research with multicenter applications.

Join the conference and take part in the design and initiation of important studies that will advance the science of pediatric dermatology and ultimately, help our young patients. Please note: PeDRA has obtained funding to offset the cost of this conference and will subsidize a limited number of registrants. To be considered for financial support, please register early!

*PLEASE NOTE: The 1) Connective Tissue Disorder and 2) Hair/Nail/Other Inflammatory subgroups will be having their workgroup session prior to the start of the general meeting (Friday Nov 4, 7:45-9:45am). This is the only venue for small group discussion of projects related to these Inflammatory Skin disorders. Travels should be planned accordingly for attendance.

To support the collaborative goals of PeDRA, investigators attending the Annual Conference are strongly encouraged to submit a brief abstract for a current research project, a new pilot project, or a longer range/visionary proposal. Active participation is necessary for a productive meeting! Attendees are encouraged to collaborate with others in formulating their proposals – abstracts should be submitted by PeDRA Active Members or residents/fellows/research associates in collaboration with Active Members.
