Dear Friends and Colleagues,
On behalf of the Keloid Research Foundation and the Plastic Surgery Department at Peking Union Medical College Hospital, we are delighted to extend a warm welcome, and cordially invite you to join us for the 3rd International Keloid Symposium to be held in Beijing, the City of Dreams, on the 19th, 20th and 21st of April 2019.
The aim of this symposium is to bring together many experts in keloid disorder – from the bedside to the bench – to discuss the challenges of this poorly understood condition. The Program Committee is organizing an extraordinary array of original clinical as well as basic science sessions for this meeting.
The 2019 program will emphasize on exceptionally strong scientific and clinical content across the breadth of keloid disorder, from cutting-edge laboratory research to clinical data-mining, current treatment approaches, pros and cons of surgery, radiation, cryotherapy, chemotherapy, laser treatment and other non-surgical interventions.
Our 2018 meeting that was held in Rome, Italy was a truly international event with participants from 22 different countries. What we learned in Rome was that the 2019 meeting shall be a three-day event, allowing for additional time for much-needed discussions.
We sincerely hope that 2019 will be a very visible meeting in every possible aspect. We hope that this meeting will not only bring many more investigators and specialist clinicians who are passionate about keloid disorder but also allow for more free communications among all who are interested in this very hard-to-treat and under-studied human ailment. All this is done with only one goal in mind: to help those who suffer the most, the keloid patients.
We look forward to welcoming you to Beijing.
The Organizing Committee
