F055 - Late-breaking Research: Basic Science/Cutaneous Oncology/Pathology

Saturday, March 2; 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Describe ground-breaking scientific developments in dermatologic research.
  • Evaluate and apply information from recent investigations to clinical practice.


Researchers can submit abstracts describing their most recent unpublished results. After a competitive review, the top scoring studies will be invited to discuss their findings in a brief oral presentation during one of the themed sessions. This year, there will be three Forums (clinical/pediatric dermatology, surgery/procedural dermatology and basic science/dermatopathology) and a new Clinical Trials Symposium. Together, these sessions will highlight the latest ground-breaking observations in all aspects of dermatological research.
