Skin Deep - 20 Years of Research
The British Skin Foundation Celebrated 20 Years of Research at the Royal College of Physicians, London
Skin Deep – 20 Years of Research was a professional conference celebrating the British Skin Foundation’s research over the past two decades. In the 20 years since its launch, the British Skin Foundation has partnered with thousands of skin disease sufferers, their families and friends, dermatology departments and industry to charitably raise more than £15,000,000 to fund over 300 research projects throughout the UK and Ireland.
The one-day special event attracted delegates from across the country to listen to renowned researchers as they shared their British Skin Foundation funded work. The charity prides itself on the quality of work it supports and is committed to increasing its financial contribution to research year on year. With 60% of the UK population having suffered or currently suffering from a skin disease, there’s still a lot of research to do to help improve people’s lives.
The event was followed by an evening reception for delegates, supporters and friends of the British Skin Foundation past and present.
