Program Chairs Letter

Dear Colleagues:

On behalf of the Program Committee, we invite you to the 17th Annual
Meeting and Exhibition of the Wound Healing Society in association with
the SAWC in beautiful Tampa, Florida. As in previous years, the meeting
will be filled with stimulating talks and the opportunity to learn and
to share the latest advances in basic and clinical wound healing. New to
the program this year, are the combined sessions with our colleagues in
the SAWC. We anticipate that this will bring even more interaction and
exchange of ideas, along with increased opportunities for networking and
collaboration.

The program will start with a great session on
Genetic Approaches and Models in Wound Healing presented by four experts
in the field. Another session will cover Effect of Age on Wound
Healing. We, then, hear about Healing of Other Tissues such as bone and
nerve healing. On the 3rd day of the meeting, we will have two excellent
talks about Emerging Technologies. The last session will be on Skin
Equivalent Products Industry Perspective. We will, of course, have the
regular 9 sessions with abstracts presented by you on Angiogenesis,
Inflammation, Stem Cells, Acute Wound, Chronic Wounds, Oxygen,
Bioengineering, Gene Therapy and Fibrosis/ Scar. The Young Investigator
Award will recognize the efforts of our junior investigators, while the
Blue Ribbon Poster Award will recognize the most outstanding
contributions from our industrial colleagues.

Please take advantage of the on-line submission process to be sure that your
abstract is made available to us well ahead of the deadline. www.woundheal.org. The accepted abstracts will be published in Wound Repair and Regeneration.
We look forward to joining you in Tampa, Florida.
