Modern biology is moving faster than ever before and this is nowhere more obvious than in modern genetics. As the success of HGP and HapMap Project, the genodermatology research comes to the main focus in the modern dermatology. Especially recent years, the advent of Genome Wide Association Study obviously promoted the development of genodermatology. The goal of genodermatology is not only to find the etiology underlying the diseases and explain the pathway related. The more important is to make the best use of them and translate them into the clinic.
The success of the First World Congress on Genodermatology in 2007 and Second World Congress on Genodermatology in 2010 Maastricht convincingly shown that those who work in genetic skin disorders appreciate a focus for reflection. Encouraged by the enormous success and enthusiastic feedback from colleagues around the world, it has been decided to organize the Third World Congress on Genodermatology in Beijing city, the capital of China. The meeting will take place in China National Convention Central (the main news central for 2008 Beijing Olympics) from June 12 to 14, 2012. More information is available on the official website www.cmacsd.org/wcg2012.
Well-known experts from various fields of genodermatology and allied disciplines will inform us about the state of the art. The World Congress will also offer ample opportunities for young researchers to present their most recent work, giving them the chance to discuss their results with renowned experts and leaders in both basic and clinical science.
Beijing, the capital of China, with 3000 years history, is a world well-known city. It comes together between the ancient history and modern culture. It will offer many delights to all. Beijing will ravish all visitors who want to enjoy the best in China. The city is easy to reach, with Beijing Capital Airport connecting the world. We will do our best to share with you the advances in genodermatology, and the Chinese passion and hospitalities.
We are looking forward to welcoming you!
