Date:6/11/2014

GALVESTON, Texas Dr. David Herndon of the University of Texas Medical Branch will receive an international award for his contributions to the field of burn care research and innovations in improving the care of burn survivors.

Herndon is the eighth person to receive the International Burn Foundation's Tanner-Vandeput-Boswick Burn Prize since the quadrennial award was established in 1984. He will be honored in October at the Congress of the International Society for Burn Injuries taking place in Sydney, Australia.

Dr. David L. Callender, UTMB president, said, "This prestigious award acknowledges Dr. Herndon's many contributions to the care of burn patients. His research has helped to define the Blocker Burn Unit as among the best in the world and this award places him among the elite of surgeons."

Herndon, the Jesse H.

He is recognized for his multiple, seminal contributions to the burn field, including his discoveries related to an increase in a person's metabolic system in response to a burn injury. Burn wounds trigger a system response that causes increased caloric needs to support the high energy expenditure, typically one and a half times greater than normal, caused by the release of adrenalin and other hormones. He literally wrote the book on caring for patients; "Total Burn Care" is now in its fourth edition, with translated versions in use all over the world.

He was an early advocate of burn-wound excision within 48 hours of injury followed by complete coverage with grafts and a pr
