The 68th Annual Montagna Symposium on the Biology of Skin, "Decoding Complex Skin Disease: Integrating Genetics, Genomics & Disease Biology," will explore connections from genotype through intermediate phenotypes to clinical expression of polygenic skin diseases, including psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, vitiligo, lupus, alopecia areata, cancer and others. Our goal is to bring together clinicians and researchers to foster a better understanding of the biological and mechanistic connections between genes, transcripts and proteins and the pathogenesis of these diseases.
