Newest research in dermatology and venereology, interviews with notable doctors, professors and researchers: a focused look on today's dermatology and new developments looking to the future.
E28: Acral Lentiginous Melanoma, Vitiligo, and Inflammatory Skin Diseases: All in a day's work for an all-round expert
How can we bring our research data back to the benefit of our patients? Prof. Lajos Kemény, one of the most respected scientists in Hungary and a JEADV Section Editor, says this has always been the question at the heart of his clinical and research activities. Tune into this information-packed episode as Prof. Kemény shares with us his wide-ranging expertise on acral lentiginous melanoma, the application of the xenon chloride excimer laser technology for treatment of vitiligo, and the new therapeutic advances in treatment of atopic dermatitis and psoriasis.
E27: Venous Leg Ulcers & Risk Factors
As dermatologists we are often confronted with patients with a non-healing leg ulcers. This may well be caused by venous insufficiency. In this podcast Audrey Meulendijks, author of "A systematic review on risk factors in developing a first-time Venous Leg Ulcer" is interviewed by EADV Education Committee member Bibi van Montfrans. Since risk factors for venous ulcers are also associated with lifestyle, we discuss the extent to which dermatologists should be engaged in lifestyle changes: a question that is relevant also for other dermatological diseases. In addition, the importance of providing more adequate information to our patients about the why and how of our treatments is underscored.

E25: Reflectance Confocal Microscopy
This week Dr Paola Pasquali catches up with Prof. Salvador Gonzalez-Rodriguez. Considered one of the “fathers” of Reflectance Confocal Microscopy, Prof. Gonzalez speaks about the role of RCM in the universe of non-invasive imaging techniques. He also speaks about the most common uses in dermatology, its sensitivity for diagnosing malignancies and the learning curve for this procedure, and explains the potential uses in teledermatology and the future hand-held prototype.
E24: On the brink of a (tele)dermatology revolution
In recognition of Skin Cancer Awareness Month in May, Prof. Peter Soyer shares his latest research findings on how teledermatology can play a pivotal role in preventing and detecting skin cancer and melanoma. Join us as we discuss the current paradigm shift in dermatology thanks to artificial intelligence, mobile teledermoscopy and virtual melanoma checks paving the way for more accessible and effective diagnostics and patient care.
Prof. Soyer is the Inaugural Chair in Dermatology at the University of Queensland, Director of the Princess Alexandra Hospital Dermatology Department, and Project & QLD Lead of Australian Centre of Excellence in Melanoma Imaging and Diagnosis.

E23: Part 2- Sunbed Use and Skin Cancer Risk
In this second part of a two-episode series on health risks associated with sunbed use, Prof. Mariano Suppa rejoins us and shares his research findings with a special focus on European sunbed use. His call for effective educational, behavioural and legislative interventions to reduce the popularity of artificial tanning in Europe is particularly relevant as we kick off Skin Cancer Awareness Month.
