our skin's needs, together
At ISDIN we love skin and our main mission is to spread that love so that people can improve how they look after their skin, because to love is also to care. And to care, you need to understand, which is why one of our key pillars is research: we want to learn more about how our skin works so that we can give you the very best. But knowledge not shared is of no use. That's what makes dissemination so important, especially if no one acts on the knowledge we have, and that's why our projects focus ultimately on reducing the incidence of skin cancer. There is still a long way to go, but we're sure that with your help we'll be able to go even further.
Just as we care for our skin, we also want to care for and improve the footprint we leave on our planet. Not only by looking for ways to be more sustainable, but also by acting to protect our world. There is still a long road ahead and we'd like to walk along it with you.
Education and research programmesWe are convinced that education, research and dissemination are the real driving forces behind change.
That's why we have programmes that teach us more about skin health so that we can all understand and share the importance of skin care. Projects we could not carry out without support from our community.
We know that children are one of the groups most vulnerable to the effects of solar radiation, but what if we teach them to protect themselves? For 27 years, ISDIN's School Photoprotection Programme has been offering children, families and schools tools to help them understand the importance of photoprotection through education and teaching. An innovative project with contents that are continually updated to ensure both in-person and remote participation.
In conjunction with the University of Barcelona, ISDIN has created the UB-ISDIN LIVE YOUNG Chair. It is the first chair to focus on studying the exposome and skin-ageing: two closely related and increasingly relevant topics in dermatology that still pose many questions. Together we do research to understand and help reverse the effects and causes of environmental factors on dermatological health.
