I will be giving a plenary talk and presenting a poster on aPKC function in drug-resistant basal cell carcinoma on May 10 at the International Investigative Dermatology (IID) meeting in Edinburgh, Scotland. I have also been awarded the IID Trainee Retreat Travel Fellowship. The IID meeting brings together the ESDR, SID, and JSID every five years to showcase exciting science, collegiality, and social interactions. Internationally renowned scientists will join the meeting and guarantee a stimulating exchange of the latest scientific information. Edinburgh was selected as the meeting venue for the IID meeting in 2013, because the city is well-connected to international travel and offers a multitude of congress facilities, accomodation, as well as a stimulating atmosphere. Edinburgh itself is a beautiful ancient city that reflects a lot of Old Europe in a charming way. Besides being a World Heritage City, Edinburgh also offers a special Scottish touch that is appreciated by many tourists every year and that makes the city one of the prime destinations for travellers in Britain.
