Skin conditions are a leading cause of overall disability and death in Canada. Canadian researchers have made substantial contributions to address the heavy burden of skin disease, but much of the work is conducted by a widespread community of scientists and clinicians in relative isolation. The Skin Investigation Network of Canada (SkIN Canada) is working to expand skin research expertise, create new collaborations, and enhance skin health through innovation.
We have brought together patients and a team of researchers and clinicians across the country who are tackling a variety of questions about a broad range of skin conditions, including the way diseases develop, the way they are diagnosed and treated, and the health care systems involved.
