The value of DEBRA International is never clearer than at the EB research conference, which it organises every three years. The 2012 conference was held in November in Marbella, Spain, and brought together almost 100 of the world’s top EB researchers, and a number of patient representatives. The value of bringing together researchers to share, challenge each other and plan for the future cannot be overstated. It was heartening to see the progress in the research since the previous conference and everyone who attended left with a renewed sense of purpose and urgency.

The conference was organised by the DEBRA International staff, working closely with the conference host, DEBRA Spain. All involved should be commended on an incredibly well-run meeting.

While at the conference we interviewed many of the top researchers and put together this brief video of their thoughts on what they witnessed there.
