We are experiencing a revolution in our understanding of atopic eczema!

This symposium brings together leaders in the field, covering novel therapeutics, the role of skin infections, population-based research and the relationship between atopic eczema and contact, food and respiratory allergies. 

Topics include: 

  • The latest developments in systemic atopic eczema therapeutics and where these treatments fit into clinical practice alongside established agents 
  • The relationship between atopic eczema and allergic diseases and how to manage such co-morbidities in clinical practice
