Welcome to the XXV International Pigment Cell Conference!

The theme of IPCC 2023 will be “Looking for translational opportunities by persevering in basic pigment cell research”. It will showcase the newest and most innovative scientific findings and techniques in the field and their application to the treatment of disorders of pigment cells. It has been one of our goals that, in addition to compiling a program of great interest to pigment cell scientists and clinicians, we also will make a special effort to attract investigators from other fields to present exciting innovative techniques, which may open new perspectives and opportunities.
