SPIN – Skin Inflammation & Psoriasis International Network is an action for professionals and patients initiated by the FRT - Fondation René Touraine, an international non-profit and non-governmental charity dedicated to support therapeutic progress in dermatology.
SPIN gathers a scientific committee of 44 members, 107 national representatives, 70 patients associations, and 4000 dermatologists from 100 countries.
This network was initiated by a group of European experts in psoriasis. It has grown throughout the years by welcoming more experts in this area but also new ones in atopic dermatitis (since 2017) and in vitiligo (since 2020).
For the coming years, SPIN will pursue its growth by including new experts in alopecia and in hidradenitis suppurativa.
SPIN’s mission is to improve the quality of healthcare for patients suffering from chronic inflammatory skin diseases, while developing national and international collaborations in the field of skin inflammation.
Its goal is to raise awareness for the immune-mediated inflammation diseases it covers but also to build bridges between them.
Its actions are developped according to 3 axes as displayed in the strategic framework above.
