ISSAKS 2017

An international forum for the exchange of ideas in Skin Scarring, Keloid pathobiology and clinical management

At The New York Academy of Medicine, November 3rd & 4th, 2017


International Skin Scarring and Keloid Symposium (ISSAKS) 2017

Every human (including all mammals) will form a permanent scar following a deep enough skin injury.  Worryingly, some of these scars become symptomatic, disfiguring and difficult to treat. Management of some skin scars such as keloids can be complex, costly and long-term as curative treatment remains ill defined. 

ISSAKS 2017 (International Skin Scarring and Keloid Symposium) plans to bring together an international line up of expert clinicians, scientists and industry specialists with decades of experience in treating and managing skin scarring to enable a knowledge exchange with a focus on developing novel strategies for enhanced management of scarring in the future.   

This two days event to be held at the New York Academy of Medicine, on Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th of November 2017 in New York, USA. It's purpose will be to disseminate the latest up-to-date advances in scientific research, clinical practice and technological innovations and enhancements to enable innovative approaches to manage skin scarring, keloid disease and related conditions. 


Who should attend?

Anyone with a scientific or clinical interest in skin wounds, including all forms of cutaneous scarring as well as hypertrophic and keloid scarring. In particular physicians (particularly dermatologists with an interest in scarring), surgeons (particularly plastic surgeons, facial plastic surgeons, maxillofacial and ENT surgeons with an interest in scarring), clinician scientists, students (medical and scientific), nurse specialists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, psychologists, and all other allied healthcare professionals (AHP’s) as well as industry representatives including small to medium size enterprise (SME) working in the healthcare and biotech fields with an interest in healing and fibrosis.
