The 19th Annual Meeting of the European Dermatology Forum (EDF) was held in Zurich, Switzerland from the 21–23 January 2016. The meeting represents a highlight in the annual calendar of key opinion leaders in dermatology across Europe since it combines a rich program of scientific updates and health politics together with an ideal opportunity for constructive networking.
“The real spirit of the EDF is the interaction between members, industry, partners and speakers, as well as having a wonderful program of lectures including innovative medical science, dermatology, issues which may be controversial and issues of broader interest.” Lars French, President EDF.
The EDF is a non-profit organisation founded in 1997, which is dedicated to advancing dermatology and improving healthcare for dermato-venereology patients across Europe (http://www.euroderm.org/edf). The EDF has 200 active members all of whom are heads of academic departments and key opinion leaders in dermatology. Furthermore, senior members (retired professors) and corporate members from pharmaceutical industries and other organisations all together build up a huge platform of knowledge, experience and visions for exchange and networking.
