The mission of JSID is to advance inspire the next generation of dermatologists by encouraging collaboration and scientific exchange between all dermatology societies. The society also aims to bolster the position of dermatology in the interdisciplinary world by enhancing the quality of science and research to maintain healthy skin and further advance the treatment of skin diseases. JSID supports young academicians by organizing seminars to encourage promising young doctors to become dermatological researchers.
At the Mary Kay-sponsored symposium on skin barriers and skin redness, a panel featured Dr. Lucy Gildea, chief scientific officer at Mary Kay Inc., as the moderator. The panel explored environmental protection strategies against skin aging in Asians, protein response to skin inflammation and skin barrier defects. Panel speakers at the symposium included Dr. Akimichi Morita, MD Ph.D.; Dr. Sang Eun Lee, MD Ph.D.; and Dr. Gyohei Egawa, MD Ph.D.
“By participating in events like JSID, we’re able to learn and share relevant research while continuing to develop breakthrough products with powerful benefits that deliver the skin care benefits women want,” commented Gildea.
