It is our pleasure to invite you for the 1st International Netherton Congress (THINC), that will take place online on November 26, 2020, 4 – 8 PM CET.

Why this congress?

Netherton Syndrome is a very rare and severe condition for which there is no cure or proper treatment yet. It is time for a change! We want to start making the difference together with  patients, their families and involved professionals as one big group of experts. Because a patient, and a parent, is also an expert concerning Netherton syndrome. During the congress we will define our goals for the coming years.

Join us!

The congress will be hosted by Erasmus MC University Medical Center Rotterdam, The Netherlands, that is part of the European Reference Network-SKIN. You’re invited to join online on Zoom*. To organize the congress we are asking a small fee from participants: Patiënts/parents: € 15,- / Medical students: € 50,- / Professionals: € 150,- / Industry representatives: € 1.500,-. If you cannot afford this fee, it is possible to join the congress free of charge.
