Due to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, we have POSTPONED the 69th Annual Montagna Symposium on the Biology of Skin until October 2021.



The mission of the Montagna Symposium on the Biology of Skin is fourfold:

  • To thoroughly cover one aspect of skin biology annually, identifying unsolved problems and long term goals
  • To allow the exchange and acquisition of new knowledge on a formal basis and provide a proving ground for new concepts, and to share these with the greater scientific and medical community
  • To integrate topics at the interfaces of disciplines, fostering new collaborations and developing and translating animal models, where necessary, to human benefit
  • To encourage young investigators in pursuit of careers in academic and investigational dermatology to build interactive, collaborative relationships with established physicians and scientists
