Innovative strategies for war wounded
Date:10/23/2008

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. The New Jersey Center for Biomaterials will host the 9th New Jersey Symposium on Biomaterials Science and Regenerative Medicine, Oct. 29 to Oct. 31 at the Hyatt Regency, New Brunswick.

Academic, clinical and industrial investigators will present their strategies for addressing the challenges of severe blast injuries, such as those encountered in Iraq and Afghanistan. The researchers will share expertise on underlying biological, chemical and engineering technologies that enable new approaches to reconstruction and regeneration of injured tissues.

Dr. C. Everett Koop, former surgeon general of the United States, will be the guest speaker at the Oct. 30 dinner. Key decision makers from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Defense, and program directors from the National Institutes of Health will present talks and participate in panel discussions.

Many of the 80 symposium speakers are academic and industry members of the Department of Defense's newly established Armed Forces Institute for Regenerative Medicine (AFIRM). The gathering of top federal officials, researchers, members of AFIRM and industry will make this symposium a landmark event, promising remarkable changes in the lives of wounded service members.

Some of the speakers are investigators who are close to implementing clinical trials of novel therapies that will impact wound healing, salvaging injured limbs, facial reconstruction and prevention of scars:

  • George Muschler from the Cleveland Clinic will describe his work as an orthopedic surgeon, combining cells and synthetic scaffolds to rebuild large bone defects.

  • Richard Clark, a dermatologist from Stony Brook University is studying the application of proteins and nutritional supplements to the skin to reduce and repair burn injuries.

  • Adam Katz, a plastic surgeon from the University of Virgin
