  5. Many of you will have been to an evidence-based update meeting organised by the Centre of Evidence-Based Dermatology at Nottingham where new evidence from systematic reviews and clinical trials are presented along with an expert panel involving clinicians, patients and methodologists. One unique feature of the meeting is that the topic for the next meeting is chosen by the delegates. The chosen topic for 2019 is hair disorders and topics will include an update on treatments for alopecia areata including JAK inhibitors. The meeting is being organised by the CEBD team led by Professor Hywel Williams in collaboration with the British Hair and Nail Society. So please save the date and do check the CEBD website as registration will open in November 2019. The meeting is usually fully booked, so please do not leave it until the last minute. For further information, please contact Maggie McPhee margaret.mcphee@nottingham.ac.uk and check the CEBD website https://www.nottingham.ac.uk/conference/fac-mhs/medicine/evidence-based-update-meeting/ "
  6. Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement (PPIE) are increasingly viewed as a vital component of any research proposal. These not only inform us of the feasibility of a study but also ensure the research we do is relevant and important to our patients. On the 23rd June we hosted a PPIE event in Manchester called “All about Alopecia” funded by the University of Manchester’s BRC funding programme and supported by Alopecia UK. This eventful and productive meeting brought together clinicians, researchers and people with various types of alopecia in a free day event. Information giving and gathering was shared in a variety of settings running in parallel, including a rolling programme of interactive talks, focus group work, a mindfulness session, an art project and a central “market place”. Two workshops ran throughout the day (“ETAAP” (Early Treatment for AA Prevention) and “ROMA” (Refining Outcome Measures in AA)) that will hopefully help improve trial design for future studies. The market place was a popular component of the day allowing people with hair loss to speak with researchers and clinicians and take part in a number of activities, including feasibility of self-SALT scoring and rating the recent hair loss PSP outcomes. Stalls included a clinical and research area to discuss previous and current studies, patient representatives to chat and shared tips on hair makeup techniques and stalls from TRENDCO (local wig provider) and MASUMI head wear where they showcased their products and offered advice. Alopecia UK kindly supported the event and sent members of their team. We particularly thank members of the BHNS who gave up their time to support the day, including Susan Holmes, Abby MacBeth (and the ROMA study group) and Andrew Messenger. The day ended with a prize draw with the first prize winner leaving with an Amazon Echo. Feedback from the day was generally very positive. For many in attendance this was the first time they had spoken with other people with hair loss in a safe non-threatening environment. Will we do it again? Yes – probably, but not for a couple of years to give us chance to recover! Caroline White Matthew Harries Manchester (August 2018)

  20. I am extremely grateful to be awarded a travel fellowship by the British Hair and Nail Society to attend the 10th World Congress for Hair Research, 2017. This conference was held at the International Conference Centre in Kyoto, Japan on 31st October to 3rd November 2017. The main theme of the Congress is ‘Visiting Old, Finding New’. This is a Japanese proverb meaning to review the progress of all previous research activities with the aim of gaining new insight for future directions. The 4-day Congress comprised of a day of hair courses for beginners and residents, and 3 days of scientific programme that included keynote lectures, plenary and concurrent sessions, scientific posters, clinical workshops, sponsored seminars and meet the expert sessions. On my first day of my arrival at the Congress, I was impressed by Congress venue that was filled with beautiful autumn scenery in a large garden. At the opening ceremony, Presidents from each of the Hair Societies from all over the world presented the histories of their Societies and developments. It was interesting to see how medical professions from all over the world come together to exchange knowledge and research findings in hair diseases, with the aim of bringing new and advanced treatments to this field. The learning course for residents was particularly useful to me as I have learnt about post-finasteride syndrome and management of difficult hair diseases. The topic on post-finasteride syndrome also generated a lot of debate on the use of this treatment for patients. The first day of the Congress ended with a special lecture on ancient Japanese hairstyles from a Japanese author. It was very interesting to see a different perspective on hairstyles presented from a non-medical professional. I found the plenary sessions on research on stem cells and hair transplantation enlightening. This was my first exposure to in-depth research studies in hair diseases. There were also updated treatments for various hair diseases which were useful to me as a trainee. From this conference, I have also realised that there is a need for further research in hair diseases, as there are still a lot of unanswered questions in this field. The experience has been amazing and I would definitely encourage trainees who are interested in hair diseases to attend the next World Congress for Hair Research in Barcelona in 2018.
