Scientific Committee

SPIN is steered by a Scientific Committee that supervises the good development of the Psoriasis International Network. The coordinators of the Scientific Committee represent the committee within the FRT - Fondation Rene Touraine’s Scientific Board.

The mission of the SPIN Committee is to develop the activities of the network, in particular by proposing international collaborative projects, contributing to continuing medical training in the field of skin inflammation and providing support to the development of national and regional networks.
