Keynote speakers for the two-day 16th Sun Protection Conference in London this November have been unveiled by the organiser.
The presentations include ‘The sun damage pandemic - reporting from the front-line’ by British consultant dermatologist and dermatological surgeon Dr. Andrew Birnie.
Another keynote address is ‘The Danish Research Centre for Skin Cancer: Reimagining diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer’ by University of Copenhagen/Bispebjerg University Hospital clinical professor of dermatology/senior consultant Dr. Merete Haedersdal.
The conference, which takes place on 28-29 November at the Royal College of Physicians will feature four themed sessions: (1) Latest insights into the mechanisms, epidemiology and human impact of UV-induced skin cancer/ageing; (2) Challenges to our UV filter palette over the next 10 years; (3) The UV filters, testing and labelling of the future; and (4) A brave new world – a vision for the future.
“Since 1993, the Sun Conference stage has hosted world-class papers reporting the latest advances in the understanding of the mechanisms behind skin cancer and photo-ageing, the testing and labelling of SPF/UVA/water resistance/photostability, innovation towards true broad-spectrum photoprotection, increasingly elegant, aesthetically-pleasing technology and more,” said conference organiser Professor Paul Matts.
“We now face a decade of unprecedented challenge. Climate change, conflicts and migration will accelerate and continue to shape the pattern and dose of human exposure to solar UVR, globally,” he added.
“This landmark Sun Conference, therefore, will face the coming decade head-on, with a carefully-curated faculty and agenda that does not shirk these challenges but identifies, dissects and analyses both issues and solutions.”
