The SSBC holds two meetings per year, typically on the last Thursday of May and November. These times are chosen to be a complementary as possible to the clinical commitments of the medical fraternity. The attendees are mainly scientists, vets and clinicians working in the field of skin research. Lifetime membership fee is a nominal £10.
Since the Club rules stipulate that papers from the floor should not have been presented previously at national or international meetings, this has meant that it is an ideal forum for junior speakers and postgraduate students to hone their presentation skills- it also means that talks heard are “hot off the bench” and provides a test-drive for talks that will be presented later at national and international meetings.
