The IPPF has always been instrumental in supporting clinical and scientific meetings. In addition to supporting the American Academy of Dermatology’s (AAD) Symposium on Autoimmune Blistering Diseases, the IPPF is co-sponsoring the International Pemphigus Meeting in Bern, Switzerland in June 2009. This meeting will gather the finest minds in the world studying and researching pemphigus.
Subjects include: models in pemphigus, cell signaling, immune responses, unconventional therapies, and how stem cells might play a part. Janet Segall, IPPF Director of Patient Services & Education, will add a human face to the ramifications of these diseases among the scheduled scientific discussions.
The hope for better results comes from the work of people speaking and attending this meeting. The IPPF is proud to partner and co-sponsor such an important discussion and thank all those involved. The registration deadline is March 31, 2009. Anyone interested in attending this meeting should register at http://www.kas.unibe.ch/pemph09/.
