Mission of the Burn/Wound and Regenerative Medicine Laboratory: As burn and general reconstructive surgeons, we see and treat the problems of extremity trauma first-hand and believe current diagnostic and treatment strategies are inadequate. We hope that the research we perform will these findings to other aberrant wound healing challenges.
