Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the European Society for Pigment Cell Research (ESPCR), we invite you to join us for the 22nd ESPCR Annual Meeting in Brussels, on 12-14 September 2019.
The ESPCR is a scientific society dedicated to understanding the biology of the pigment cells, melanocytes, from normal to pathological development. It aims at deciphering the biology of the melanocyte, to better understand its dysfunction and pathological evolution.
For this year, we have the great privilege of hosting this meeting at the prestigious Palais des Académies, situated at the heart of Brussels.
The programme of the Congress will extend over 3 days and will combine research sessions as well as clinical sessions, focusing on all the pathologies linked to the melanocyte, from dermoscopic diagnosis to melasma treatment, from vitiligo to melanoma, all conducted by internationally renowned experts and heads of clinics. On  Saturday 14 September , through the collaboration of the international prevention programme Euromelanoma and of the IDS (International Dermoscopy Society) a course will be organized with the kind collaboration of Aimilios Lallas, General Secretary of  the IDS.
Before the ESPCR Congress activities start, on 12 September the 2019 Naevus International (NI) Conference will take place in the same venue: NI is a cross-disciplinary initiative which aims to disseminate information on Congenital Melanocytic Naevi (CMN) to a global audience of patients, families, support groups, psychologists, social teams, doctors and scientists. The 2019 annual conference will bring together key members of these groups to present the latest information about CMN.
The full scientific programme of the ESPCR Congress is constantly updated and available on this website

We very much hope you enjoy the meeting and look forward to welcoming you in Brussels.
Prof. Veronique del Marmol

Venue

Originally built for the Prince of Orange between 1823 and 1825, the Palace of the Academies is one of the city’s most prestigious palaces. This place is steeped in history: it was home to the Prince of Orange during the Dutch period and it is now residence to the Royal Academy of Science and Arts and the Royal Academy of Medicine. Located in the heart of the capital, between the European district and the historic center, the building represents a late but pure example of neoclassicism. Its neoclassical style, its harmonious facade, its halls enhanced with gold and marble, its gardens inhabited by statues and fountains make it an exceptional place, ideal to host seminars, congresses or events.
