This conference is organized by the International Dupuytren Society in cooperation with the Dupuytren Research Group and the University of Oxford. The conference will include academic research presentations and panel discussions regarding Dupuytren disease and related conditions. The goal of this conference is raising awareness regarding Dupuytren disease, sharing new concepts and ideas, and promoting cooperative efforts to work for a better treatment and, finally, a cure.

Please note: due to the on-going Covid-19 pandemic the conference in 2021 was organized as virtual symposium. Please visit this website to get updates on the next symposium and join the DRG mailing list. A face to face conference will be organized as soon as the global medical situation allows it. We expect this to happen sometimes in 2023 – 2025.

The conference is targeted as a gathering of researchers and clinicians with a wide spectrum of interests: cell biology, genomics, surgery, pharmacotherapy, radiotherapy, biomechanics, therapy, as they relate to Dupuytren disease and related conditions.

The 2021 symposium was split into a series of fortnightly and virtual web sessions, distributed over a period of about two months scientific program.

An invitation by Baron Guillaume Dupuytren himself!

Videos of presentations and discussions are available online, therefore no proceedings of the 2021 symposium will be published.

This Dupuytren conference is part of a series of international conferences that started in 2010 in Miami, Florida, and was followed by a conference in 2015 in Groningen, The Netherlands, (Conference History). Results of those conferences have been published in Charles Eaton, Heinrich Seegenschmiedt, Ardheshir Bayat, Giulio Gabbiani, Paul Werker, and Wolfgang Wach (Eds.) “Dupuytren’s Disease and Related Hyperproliferative Disorders” Springer, 2012 ebook and in Paul Werker, Joseph Dias, Charles Eaton, Bert Reichert, Wolfgang Wach (eds) “Dupuytren Disease and Related Diseases – The Cutting Edge”, Springer 2016, http://www.springer.com/de/book/9783319321974.
