Welcome Remarks

Welcome to Korean Society for Investigative Dearmatology (KSID)! Korean Society for Investigative Dermatology (KSID) has been holding regular academic conferences every spring since it was found in 1991. Not only in spring, but also in autumns we hold research camps for 2-days to provide an opportunity for in-depth discussions and making friendships among members.

KSID is a society that presents and discusses basic and clinical research specialized in the areas of dermatologic science. We are actively engaged with other societies that share the same purposes throughout the world, such as the Society for Investigative Dermatology (SID) from the U.S., European Society for Dermatology Research (ESDR), and Japanese Society for Investigative Dermatology (JSID). Together, we are becoming the leading societies for the development of the field of global dermatologic science.
KSID is not only open to the medical researchers (MD researchers) who are interested in dermatologic science, but also to the non-doctoral researchers (PhD researchers) to share high-quality researches and international academic activities. In order to maximize the research capabilities of the members, our society is actively promoting the following projects:

  • First,We invite world-renowned scholars in the fields of dermatology to present their study topics and discuss them with us. This can become an opportunity to gain valuable information about new trends in dermatologic science research, and to derive new innovate research themes from them.
  • Second,We are trying to encourage researchers to achieve successful research outcomes via providing them regular academic awards, and sponsoring their expenses for participating in overseas conferences. In order to carry out this project successfully, we are raising the society development funds. Please encourage our project with your active participation.
  • Third,By promoting inter-disciplinary exchanges through collaborative research among M.D.s and Ph.Ds, we are leading the way in improving the quality of research and creating synergistic research environments.

KSID is doing our best to hold the International Investigative Dermatology (IIID), the world skin research society, in Seoul in 2023, in order to become a world-class society in the near-future. We sincerely ask to our members of KSID for an active participation in our various projects and academic activities, which will be the pioneer of basic and applied researches in the Korean dermatologic society.

Thank you for your attention.
