Dear SCOPE members and other colleagues,
The “SCOPE meetings” have become major meetings for clinicians and basic scientists working in the challenging fields of cutaneous problems (e.g. skin cancer and skin infections) in organ transplant recipients.After fruitful meetings in Berlin, Lyon, London, Stockholm, Barcelona, Dublin, Venice, Thessaloniki, Oslo, Dundee, Istanbul and Gdansk, we are now meeting in Leiden, The Netherlands for SCOPE´s 14 year anniversary.
The Congress will cover all aspects of skin problems in organ transplant recipients and ways of intervention and treatment. Invited lectures will be given by experienced researchers in this specific field. The participants are invited to submit an abstract of which the most interesting will be selected for oral presentation.
Except for oral presentations there will also be ample time for informal contacts between clinicians and scientist who are involved in skin care in organ transplant recipients to exchange ideas and treatment options in this field. This exchange of knowledge is the key factor for innovative development in SCOPE.
We will make every effort to ensure the success of the meeting, hoping many clinicians and researchers will participate in the scientific and social program of this meeting.It is my pleasure to invite you to this unique Meeting of SCOPE in Leiden, The Netherlands.
Günther Hofbauer, President of SCOPE
