8th Annual Meeting of the ASPCR, 2016
The ASPCR 2016 Conference was held in collaboration with the Taiwanese Dermatological Association (TDA) from 12 to 13 of November 2016. Prof Eric Lan and his team from TDA organised this wonderful event, with focus on Pigmentary Disorders and Photobiology/ Photomedicine. Participants enjoyed the very warm and sincere hospitality from our Taiwanese colleagues.
The congress was a great success, with delegates coming from over 17 countries. Many pigment cell and melanoma experts from Asia and around the world delivered the guest lectures. Invited speakers included Jean Bolognia, Alain Taieb, Henry Lim, David Fisher, Jin Ho Chung, Yoshiki Tokura & Akimichi Morita. Topics of interest included pigmentary disorders, latest update on the pathophysiology of vitiligo, lessons from xeroderma pigmentosus pertaining to cancer prevention and aging, the role of antioxidants in photoprotection, and the induction of regulatory T cells in phototherapy.
It was a truly enjoyable and rewarding experience.
Congratulations Prof Eric Lan, and many thanks to TDA for this collaboration!
