Pierre Fabre to take part in the 49th annual meeting of the European Society for Dermatological Research (ESDR)

16 September 2019

Skin and science will be at the heart of all the dermatological profession’s discussions from September 18 to September 21 in Bordeaux, at the 49th annual meeting of the European Society for Dermatological Research (ESDR). At this year’s event, the Pierre Fabre Group’s expertise in dermatology and dermo-cosmetics will be strongly represented. Close-up on a key event in September 2019.

“Connecting skin science and health”

The essential meeting for dermatologists from all over the world, the annual meeting of the European Society for Dermatological Research (ESDR) brings together around 1,200 professionals, doctors and researchers from Europe, America and Asia. This meeting is a fantastic opportunity to share scientific progress and “connect skin science and health” (as the organizer’s motto says). 


Showcasing the Pierre Fabre Group’s dermatological expertise

During this event, written documents and scientific posters by the Pierre Fabre Group’s skin experts will be distributed, and Pierre Fabre Dermatologie will support a symposium on the new aspects of vascular biology. The commitments of Pierre Fabre Dermo-Cosmetics to health professionals and consumer-patients will be represented on a stand hosting Pierre Fabre Dermatologie and Dermaweb, the leading website for information and training in the field of dermatology.


The SKINorigami exhibition makes skin beautiful

Finally, during this year’s ESDR meeting, Corinne Dechelette, pharmacist, Doctor of Science in Skin Biology, and Director for Prospective Development in Dermatology at Pierre Fabre Dermo-Cosmetics, will present her educational and artistic exhibition on the physiology of the skin: SKINORIGAMI (PEAURIGAMI).

There are similarities between the structure of the skin and origami, which inspired me to make origami works using photos of skin from around the world, taken using a microscope and printed on paper squares. Then I created a journey through the physiology of the skin via thirty educational, artistic compositions using origami to inform. The skin is our wrapper… so it makes sense to use wrapping tissue to explain the skin! Corinne Déchelette points out.

An exhibition in relation to the scientific poster selected by the ESDR (P198), or how to connect skin science and health.
