Presentations by the European leaders in vitiligo research and partners in cosmetics for vitiligo patients covered a range of topics, from melanocyte-keratinocyte adhesion to psychological support and make-up. In a brief speech VRF CEO Yan Valle has noted this excellent opportunity to establish closer ties between our organizations for the benefit of global vitiligo community, and explored basic aspects of the non-profit drug development for vitiligo.
