tissue Our mission is to promote and improve the scientific understanding of topical and transdermal applications through collaboration between industry and academia for the benefit of consumers

Welcome to Skin Forum, the international network of skin science. Our organization unites scientists from academia and industry in the fields of skin penetration, transdermal drug delivery, skin barrier, pharmaceutical and cosmetic formulation, dermatology, skin testing and biophysical methods, thus addressing scientific but also regulatory and business aspects. Starting from a UK-based network a decade ago, we are getting better and bigger every year. Come and join our activities to exchange on the aspects of skin science and drug delivery you are working on - our Skin Forum annual meeting, our discussion forum on LinkedIn, or additional events such as 1-day workshops. Membership is free.

We invite you to explore our website and learn about more about Skin Forum and what we do. Our events page is a great place to start to see what shows are coming soon. The downloads page contains posters and presentations from our events. We have also included a new vacancies page for anyone looking for a job.

The LinkedIn professional network allows you the opportunity to exchange news, ask the experts, hold discussions and share ideas related to skin science. One of our missions is to support the development of young scientists. In the section “Training opportunities – where you are”, we would like to summarize training courses throughout Europe in the field of skin science. If you know about a regular course which you have attended or would recommend, we are looking forward to hear from you. Please email
