Concept: Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) is a group of genetic disorders that manifest with fragility of the skin and mucous membranes, and with involvement of extracutaneous organs. EB is a prototypic disorder for which advances in genetics and clinical research enabled the development of gene therapy and of other pathogenesis-based treatments.

Aim: The workshop will deliver expert knowledge on the following aspects of EB: clinical and genetic basis, wound and interdisciplinary management, how to design and conduct clinical trials, gene therapy, and models used in translational research. The aim is preparing the next generation of EB researchers.

The workshop will consist of interactive lectures and demonstrations of how methods and models are implemented in clinical or translational research. Questions are encouraged any time to enhance the communication and level of understanding. Examples will be included in the lectures to increase the practical applicability of the knowledge. Sufficient breaks are planned to encourage personal professional interaction.
