Hair research encompasses a variety of disciplines including basic biology, clinical disorders and cosmetic science.


In addition, scientific interest in hair extends beyond the follicle itself into fields such as evolutionary biology, developmental biology and clinical psychology. As such, the conference organising committee reflects the diversity within the hair research discipline.


The programme will comprise of both plenary and concurrent sessions to cover a broad range of research areas. The prestigious John Ebling award lecture will be held on Friday morning, while we will have a clinical keynote lecture on Thursday, and a scientific keynote lecture on Friday. Within the European Hair Research Society there are members from 29 different countries.
