ESDR ANNUAL MEETING The 24th Annual Meeting of the European Society for Dermatological Research (ESDR) will be held September 24-27, 1994 at the Vienna General Hospital, Vienna, Austria. As a leading forum for research in dermatology and skin biology, the ESDR provides a broad platform for the presentation of the latest scientific results in the form of oral or poster communications. The program will be bighlighted by guest lectures from renowned scientists on new and exciting developments in molecular and cellular biology and their impact on dermatology. The closing date for submission of abstracts is May 20, 1994. Abstract forms and meeting registration information can be obtained by writing to: Prof. Dr. Wolfram Sterry, ESDR Secretary, Department of Dermatology, University of Ulm Medical School, Oberer Eselsberg 40, D-89081 ULM, Germany.
