It is our pleasure to welcome you all to Montreal for the SRGC symposium hosted at the McGill New Residence Hall in Montreal, Quebec, on May 17-18, 2017. The SRGC represents a multidisciplinary group of new and established investigators from basic and clinical research disciplines, who are focused on skin repair, healing and restoration.

The SRGC symposium is the premiere annual meeting for scientists and clinicians interested in skin tissue healing and repair in Canada and provides an excellent forum for them to interact and exchange knowledge and ideas and network with patient groups and industry partners.

This year’s symposium features speakers from across Canada and cover current hot topics in the field of skin basic and clinical research. It also encourages and recognizes the work of young scientists, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students in the field of skin research by providing them the opportunity to present their work at scientific sessions. Prizes will be awarded for best trainee oral and poster presentations.

The SRGC 2017 organizing committee members look forward to seeing you all in Montreal in May 2017!
