The purpose of the World Vitiligo Symposium is to mobilize research communities, identify common research objectives and to set integrated research directions in the focus areas of vitiligo.
Participants include representatives from patients’ communities, government, non-governmental and voluntary organizations, and researchers from such diverse backgrounds as dermatology, clinical therapy, biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics and bio-IT.
The Symposium educated participants about each other's research areas, fostered communication and collaboration, and resulted in the creation of a list of defined research priorities.
This document is a first product of the World Vitiligo Symposium. VRF recognizes that participants emphasized different approaches to research and to knowledge translation, therefore it represents a generalized consensus list.
In addition to this document, educational programs designed to identify barriers to evidence implementation and to develop solutions through multidisciplinary collaboration have emerged that reflect the impact of the World Vitiligo Symposium.
