You should reserve your own room but if you have difficulties, please contact us and we will help.
A major theme of this year’s meeting will be “broadening our horizons” to look at other forms of palmoplantar keratoderma (PPK) beyond PC and to see what we can learn from the similarities and differences between the individual hereditary disorders in this group. For example, why do people with a K6a mutation have severe plantar pain, whereas people with a K9 mutation do not? As well as being biologically interesting, these questions may hold the key to new therapy avenues to control pain or the hyperkeratosis process itself.
We hope that we will have a good turnout for the meeting – we need all your many and varied insights and ingenuity if we are to make a difference to the lives of people with PC and related keratodermas.
If you have any queries or need any help at all in relation to the meeting, please do not hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
