A first look at the latest research.

The Spotlight On Research Luncheon is an Aesthetic Foundation-sponsored program at The Aesthetic Meeting each Spring where current research grant recipients present an update on their in-progress or final research studies.

It is an opportunity for you to see the research your donations support and be the first to learn about each research study, the initial findings, and any implications that may impact your aesthetic practice and the future of the industry.
