The skin is the largest organ of the body

The LEO Foundation supports international skin research that will improve the understanding and treatment of skin diseases.

At any point in time, one in every four persons will suffer from a skin disease, which is often visible and stigmatising – and in some cases completely debilitating.

Much more research is required to provide better diagnoses, treatments and perhaps even cures for the millions of people living with skin diseases.

We support research and activities that improve our understanding of the skin, including the medicinal, biological, chemical, and pharmacological mechanisms involved in skin diseases.

We also support research and activities addressing clinical issues among people who are in risk of developing, or have developed, a skin disease, including how it impacts their quality of life and the societal costs involved.

Finally, we support education and awareness activities in Denmark, within the fields of medicine, chemistry and pharmacy.
