Annual ETRS meeting in Lyon, France

After 2 years of waiting, finally, the annual ETRS meeting took place – as planned for 2020 – in Lyon, France.

Dr. Patricia Rousselle hosted a wonderful and highly interesting meeting located at the ENS, the University of Lyon. Young investigators were gathering already at a pre-conference which was extremely well attended. Main topics at the conference were skin regeneration and basic processes of scar development. Interestingly, high quality presentation with translational character, e.g. corneal wound repair or cartilage regeneration, were part of the competition for the young investigator award.

The beauty of the ETRS meetings is that engaging in social contact with scientists and clinicians of different specialities is easy and a goal of the society to foster interdisciplinary cooperations and experience exchange. The highlight of the conference were the keynote presentation of Dr. Graziella Pellegrini on novel treatment modalities of Epidermolysis bullosa, and, of course, the boat trip on the Saone to the gala diner at Paul Bocuse.

If you haven’t been there, you missed something! See you next year in Coimbra, Portugal at the annual meeting of the ETRS in 2023!

Kind regards,
Prof. Ursula Mirastschijski
