For nearly 50 years, the European Society for Dermatological Research (ESDR) has made great efforts in supporting its members to advance research in cutaneous biology and related subjects, thereby improving our ability to maintain or restore normal structure and function of skin, i.e. skin health.

Until World War II, North American dermatologists often depended on training in European dermatology departments (Burgdorf and Bickers, 2013). American researchers with European
training were among those who founded the Society for Investigative Dermatology (SID) in the 1930s. In the meantime, it had become common for European investigators to seek
additional research training in the United States and other countries. European dermatologists with research training abroad founded the ESDR. A group of three, Michel Prunieras
(France), Sam Shuster (UK) and Klaus Wolff (Austria) met in the 1960s to discuss starting a forum for scientific exchange related to dermatology in Europe.
