SJS/TEN 2023: Bringing Science To All *   is a two-day virtual meeting that builds on the success of the previous meetings:

  • SJS/TEN 2017: Building Multidisciplinary Networks to Drive Science and Translation
  • SJS/TEN 2019: From Science to Translation meetings held March 2, 2017 in Orlando and April 26 and 27, 2019 in Vancouver Canada respectively
  • SJS/TEN 2021 Collaboration, Innovation and Community held August 28 and 29, 2021.

Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis (SJS/TEN) remains a life-threatening condition that is mainly caused by medications. SJS/TEN 2023 in the spirit of the previous SJS/TEN meetings unites Survivors, their families, Scientists and Clinicians to continue to foster growth and collaborations. A key aim integral to the SJSTEN series of meetings is to provide an integrative and multidisciplinary mentorship model and provide support and foster the careers of early investigators who will be future leaders in this area.
