The Scottish Skin Biology Club was formed in 1969 to provide a forum for discussion amongst dermatologists, scientists, and veterinary practitioners based in Scotland with a common interest in applied or basic science of skin. Originally known as the Skin Biology Club it was renamed with the addition of "Scottish" to its title in the year 2000. The members number 80-90 and come from all parts of Scotland and the north of England. They tend to be based in hospitals, universities or in other academic and commercial research organisations. The life-time joining fee is £5 and new members are always welcome.
Meetings take place twice yearly, usually, on a Thursday in May and November. Members and guests present scientific papers in a relatively informal setting to promote as much discussion as possible. Work is often presented at a preliminary stage allowing it to be refined and developed later for publication. At many meetings a guest speaker is invited to give an overview of a particular topic of general interest to members.
