Frontiers in Research, Science, and Technology (FiRST)

2021 Frontiers in Research, Science, and Technology

You are invited to submit abstract presentations for the 2021 Frontiers in Research, Science, and Technology (FiRST).

Presentations will highlight the latest ground-breaking observations in dermatology and will be thematically organized into five categories:

  • Clinical trials

  • Clinical studies including those involving pediatric populations

  • Procedural studies including Mohs/laser/cosmetic dermatology

  • Cutaneous oncology, basic science and dermatopathology

  • Technology/AI

Researchers are invited to submit abstracts describing their most recent results and the top scoring studies will be invited to discuss their findings in a brief oral presentation.

Read guidelines and procedures for submitting an abstract presentation for FiRST.

Submissions are now closed.
