Agosto

15th Meeting of the European Society for pigment cell research



September 20-23, 2009

Il Congresso della European Society for Pigment Cell Research ospita come sempre la VETF (Vitiligo European Task Force)fondata nel 2003 da Mauro Picardo (Roma) e Alain Taieb (Bordeaux), che è il Consorzio più grande che si sia mai costituito per studiare la vitiligine.

Ne sono parte dermatologi e ricercatori da tutte le Università europee dove viene fatta ricerca attiva per la nostra malattia. Abbiamo estrapolato dal programma relazioni e relatori per la vitiligine. Il programma è in inglese perché è la lingua universalmente parlata nei Convegno Scientifici.

Il sabato dopo questo Congresso ,sarà sabato 26 settembre e noi potremo avere,al nostro Convegno di Pazienti a Roma,(programma in home page del nostro sito) un diretto resoconto su tutte le ultime novità riguardanti le terapie e la ricerca per nostra malattia
