Closure of full thickness burn wounds with bioengineered skin: a preclinical study

Description 
The aim of this study is to demonstrate safety and efficacy of autologous bioengineered skin incorporating (1) NovoSorb® polyurethane polymer or (2) platelet-derived hydrogel in closing full thickness wounds in a porcine wound model. This pilot study is scheduled to take place in 2022-2023 and precedes a human clinical trial due to begin 2023. Please contact us to initiate discussions 4-6 months prior to planned start date of research. This project is most suitable for those interested in a career in burn surgery or plastic & reconstructive surgery.
