We Invite You to Attend the 8th Annual Innovations in Wound Healing Conference
Our unique meeting is led by a group of experienced educators, scientists and clinicians interested in communicating new approaches to the repair of tissues throughout the human body. The program will focus on the science of tissue repair and the implementation of new findings. We share a vision of establishing a welcoming venue to disseminate and exchange the latest advances and thinking in the science of tissue repair and the development of novel, improved strategies to address an important medical need. Participants will gain a broader perspective of the challenges of moving basic science discovery into patient care, from our presentations that extend from molecular biology to clinical development, This one-of-a-kind conference will be a balance between formal presentations, informal discussions, and poster sessions, with the goal of maximizing networking opportunities for all involved.
*Virtual only options are available during registration and provide a 25% discount.

In 2008, he was the 25th and youngest-ever member elected into the Podiatric Medicine Hall of Fame. He was the first surgeon to be appointed University Distinguished Outreach Professor at the University of Arizona. He was the first podiatric surgeon to become a member of the Society of Vascular Surgery and the first US podiatric surgeon named fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons, Glasgow.
