Anna Lipp attended the Eurobiofilms 2019 meeting which took place from 3 to 6 September in Glasgow, Scotland. The meeting was an amazing chance to meet collaboration partners and make new contacts. It provided a forum for researchers to come together and critically examine their current understanding of biofilms and to discuss ideas for studying and controlling these.
The Skin Health and Disease: Immune, Epithelial and Microbiome Crosstalk
took place in Hannover / Germany early April this year.
The skin is the largest human organ and the primary interface between the body and the environment. This conference provided a unique setting for in-depth, cross-disciplinary discussions between basic skin scientist and biologists studying immune responses in other barrier organs, as well as dermatologists, cancer biologists, immunologists and many researchers from disparate fields and fostered interaction with industry partners. We could benefit from fruitful discussions on human skin microbiome studies and we could gain insight on the adaptive immune response inside and on the surface of the skin.
