The Scientific Committee was appointed at the EASAPS Bucharest meeting in October 2017. The committee is composed of 5 Members from five European countries. Furthermore, the President Elect and Past President as well as the General Secretary are participating.

The Scientific Committee has the goal to organize and coordinate EASAPS meetings and courses in close cooperation with the President, General Secretary and Treasurer. A fruitful collaboration with ISAPS will be mandatory in the future. Teleconferences and physical meetings in our committee will planned monthly to discuss interesting upcoming topics suitable for the next EASAPS meeting. In collaboration with the Patient Safety Committee we will initiate interdisciplinary discussions on the safety of combined procedures related to the standard of plastic surgical facilities. Validated and evidenced based knowledge should be the focus at the next scientific EASAPS meeting.  It is our intention to keep the scientific program free from industry sponsored presentations.

The Scientific Committee will oversee the awarding of fellowships and awards bestowed by EASAPS. Appropriate core of aesthetic plastic surgical procedures will be developed. Analysis of European units suitable for unbiased education will be done in the next upcoming months.

I am a practising plastic surgeon, and I hold the scientific chair of European Association of Societies
of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (EASAPS). I have a research doctorate (PhD) and have published over 40
peer reviewed papers. I currently supervise four doctoral students, with three completed. I was trained
in epidemiology and biostatistics during my PhD program and receive ongoing epidemiology training
within my research group at the Karolinska Institute, the world’s premier centre for registries. In our
Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the Karolinska Hospital we have regular
workshops and journal clubs with emphasis on epidemiological and registry-related issues.
I have developed the Swedish Breast Implant Registry (BRIMP), and am its lead plastic surgeon. This
is a government funded, opt-out national registry started in 2014, and has enrolled over 16,000
patients from all university hospitals and 74 out of 85 plastic surgical units in Sweden. We released
our first annual report in 2017. It is located at the center of registries in Gothenburg, which provides
support services and registry expertise.
