President's Message

Dear ISBI Members and Friends,

As 2022 is coming to an end, we leave behind a year during which we were able to meet F2F despite all difficulties with the COVID-19 Pandemic. We reflect to our successes and look forward to a bright future for the ISBI. What a wonderful meeting we had in Guadalajara! The Congress brought us back together and provided us with renewed energy to continue to fulfill our mission. Currently, the ISBI is working to reorganize our operations (internal & external) and to refine our role within the global Burn Care Community.  I hope you have been able to answer the Query/survey that will help us to shape our future tasks. Our aim is to return to you with its outcomes and suggestions for the future in the first quarter of the new year. I am eager to meet as many of you as possible at the interesting meeting focusing on Scars A-Z in Birmingham in February, nicely hosted by Dr. Moiemen and his team.

In the new year, our aim is to start ISBI educational webinars, with a first one coming in late spring and we look forward to suggestions on relevant topics. Please stay tuned for updates.

Please continue to visit the ISBI Website at and give us suggestions for improvements on its functionality to better serve you. Finally, we ask you to follow us on all social media platforms.

Until we meet again, I wish you Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and a Happy New year!

Folke Sjoberg, MD

ISBI President
