The next edition of the Skin Science Days organised by Cosmet’in Lyon (formerly known as CED) will be held on May 20 and 21, 2021, with Professor Richard Gallo (UC San Diego), as keynote speaker and VIP guest.

All sessions will be held in English and online, due to the global health crisis. This year’s leading theme is: "How clinical experience highlights skin biology mechanisms".
