First International Societies for Investigative Dermatology Meeting


International Societies For Investigative Dermatology (ISID) Was Founded By ESDR, JSID And SID In 2013
As Charter Members the three societies agreed a memorandum of understanding for the organisation of future joint meetings. Since the founding of the society, the Korean Society for Investigative Dermatology and Taiwanese Society for Investigative Dermatology have been accepted as regular members and the Australasian Society for Dermatology Research as an Associate Member. ISID meetings are held every 5 years and replace the former IID and “Tricontinental” meetings organised in the past. To find out more about ISID, please visit: http://isiderm.org/


The International Societies for Investigative Dermatology (ISID) was established in 2013 with the aim of internationally integrating organizations dedicated to the study of skin biology in the world. The predecessor to the current SID/JSID joint congress was held in Washington DC, USA in 1985, and it later evolved into the International Investigative Dermatology (IID). IID has been held every 5 years: recently Miami (USA) in 2003, Kyoto (Japan) in 2008, Edinburgh (UK) in 2013 and Orlando (USA) in 2018, and IID has made major contributions to the development of skin biology.

Until now, only JSID from Asia has joined and developed IID. However, this time, it took a new step as ISID to become a true international society by joining similar societies all over the world including KSID, TSID and ASDR.

The skin is the largest organ in the human body and plays a central role in homeostasis and biological defense as a unique site where the external world and the organism come into contact. In fact, the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for 2021 was awarded to the study of sensory sensors in the skin. At this conference, cutting-edge and advanced skin research will be presented and exchanged by researchers around the world. The results from cross-sectoral fields such as molecular biology, developmental and regenerative medicine, immunology and allergy, biochemistry, and artificial intelligence will be reported on the skin, and it is expected that the results will contribute to clinical medicine such as the conquest of diseases and improve the welfare of the nation.

The program will feature keynote lectures by world-leading researchers, including Professor Shinya Yamanaka of the Institute for iPS Research at Kyoto University, a series of plenary and thematic concurrent symposia, and a number of submissions by the researchers from all over the world through the four-day meeting In addition, by organizing the Future Leaders Symposium, we will support to promote the participation and presentation of young researchers.

ISID 2023 will be the first international conference since the establishment of ISID. We will strive for success not only academically but also from the perspective of human resource development for our future. We deeply hope that skin researchers will come to Tokyo from all over the world and enjoy skin biology and science.
