History of the ISID
On the evening of 9 May 2013, representatives of the European Society for Dermatological Research (ESDR), the Japanese Society for Investigative Dermatology (JSID), and the Society for Investigative Dermatology (SID) gathered in historic Edinburgh Castle and signed a memorandum of understanding to form a new organization, the International Societies for Investigative Dermatology (ISID).
The ambitious mission of the ISID is to unite all organizations of scientists dedicated to investigative dermatology and cutaneous biology with the purpose of encouraging and facilitating collaboration and to jointly sponsor and support an international, abstract driven, peer reviewed scientific meeting every 5 years.
This meeting would build on the success of the International Investigative Dermatology meetings of the past 24 years, rotating among sites in Asia/Australia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas, with active participation from all member societies. The ISID is the result of the collective vision of the ESDR, JSID, and SID that the ISID will foster unprecedented levels of scientific collaboration and cooperation by bringing together the “Tri-Societies” with new and emerging societies that share our mission and values. In this “Year of Unity in Action” it seems appropriate to review how the ISID came to be, what barriers we might encounter, and, most importantly, the tremendous opportunity we have to advance investigative dermatology throughout the world.
