As you may know, the Wound Healing Foundation (WHF) is a public non-profit organization dedicated to improving the field of wound healing through a variety of educational, research, and outreach programs. We are entrusted with funding a variety of grant opportunities for new and established researchers. In 2016, up to $50,000 in grants and scholarships were awarded by the WHF. The Foundation also coordinates and hosts several global lectures and networking opportunities, including the WHF-Thomas K. Hunt Endowed Lecture, the WHF-3M Fellow Lecture and the coveted Fellow and Hunt lunches at our annual meeting.
We invite you to get involved and connect with our wound healing medical healthcare and research colleagues across the globe through our social media and with patients, through our new online support forum. See our brief list below of upcoming grant deadlines, educational events, and a volunteer opportunity, too!

As an outgrowth of the efforts of Gerald Lazarus, Rob Kirsner and David Margolis who spearheaded the Venous Ulcer Forum that culminated in the recent WRR article "Clinical Interventions for venous leg ulcers: Proposals to improve the quality of clinical leg ulcer research", the WHS and AAWC plan to formulate a joint venture between the two premier societies focused on wound research. The solitary goal is to improve clinical research in wound healing. Stay tuned for further updates.
NINR has launched a new website called "Stories of Discovery" https://www.ninr.nih.gov/all-stories-of-discovery. This website features several stories, including wound healing and prevention, as well as ongoing studies at Ohio State and Georgetown University. Make sure to check out the featured "Healing" article, where WHS President, Dr. Marjana Tomic-Canic's lab's work on microRNA is discussed.
