FORT WORTH, Texas, April 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Wound Institute today announced that it will feature a multidisciplinary forum on dynamic reciprocity at the combined meeting of the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) and the Wound Healing Society (WHS) being held in Dallas at the Gaylord Texan Hotel & Convention Center from April 14-17, 2011. Presenting faculty are Dr. Ira M. Herman, tenured Professor and Director, Center for Innovations in Wound Healing Research, Tufts University School of Medicine, and Director, Cellular and Molecular Physiology Program, Sackler School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences, Tufts University, and Dr. Greg Schultz, Professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, at the University of Florida, Gainesville. Presentations will be held on April 14 at 7:30 p.m., April 15 at 1:30 p.m. and April 16 at 1:30 p.m. (all times Central). All sessions will be held in The Wound Institute Theatre located inside the Healthpoint Biotherapeutics booth (#209).
Interactions between cells, the extracellular matrix (ECM) and other components of the cellular microenvironment underlie all forms of tissue development. This ongoing, bi-directional and process is referred to as dynamic reciprocity.
Because wound healing involves tissue development, it is also characterized by dynamic reciprocity between cells and the ECM—the structural and functional complex that surrounds cells and binds them in tissue. These carefully orchestrated interactions are disrupted in difficult-to-heal or chronic wounds, which exhibit many defects that can alter the normal communication between cells and ECM.
"We are proud to feature such a distinguished faculty for this notable educational event examining dynamic reciprocity as a scientific framework for understanding the mechanisms surrounding both normal and dysfunctional wound healing," commented Komel Grover, Director of Medical Education & Scientific Communications at Healthpo
