Biomaterials in Wound Healing And Tissue Regeneration

Friday, April 8, 2022 |  9:15 AM – 10:15 AM PST
  • 9:15 Encapsulation of MSCs in Self-Assembling Peptide Hydrogels with Activity Against Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Pa) Promotes Faster Wound Closure and Improves Tissue Regeneration in a Clean and Pathogen-Contaminated Type I Diabetic (STZ-induced) Mouse Model
  • 9:25 3D Hydrogel System For Tailoring Stem Cell Biologics To Improve The Re-Epithelialization Of Wounds
  • 9:35  A Novel Fibromodulin-Releasing Granular Hydrogel For Functional Tendon Injury Recovery
  • 9:45  Application of No Releasing Gel Increases Fibronectin, TGF-β1, and Accelerates Wound Healing in Diabetic Mice
  • 9:55  A Tissue-Engineered Cellular Construct Polarizes Macrophages Towards A Complex M1-M2 Phenotype
  • 10:05 Ex Vivo And In Vivo Analysis Of A First-In-Class Antibioifilm Polyurethane Foam For Use In Negative Pressure Wound Therapy

WHS Plenary Session: Advances in Wound PoC Diagnostics

Saturday, April 9, 2022 | 9:15 AM – 10:15 AM PST

Clinical signs of wound infection (redness, heat, swelling, and pain) and improper healing are insufficient for proper diagnosis and treatment of chronic wounds due to the complexity of the wounds and polymicrobial biofilms. New biomarkers exist that can guide the caregiver for the best regimen of care. The speakers will provide some insights of the current best practices for diagnosing wound imbalance and infection as well as future biomarkers that may provide clues to improved homeostasis of the wound.
