Biomaterials for
Soft Tissue Repair/Wound Healing



September 19, 2014

Biotechnology, Sciences and Engineering (BSE) 2.102


Providing wound care for patients is one of the most expensive aspects of our current health care systems. An insight into skin properties, wound healing and market factors will be presented to provide a basis for biomedical product development. The unique Rochal polymers/products to be discussed are expected to assist in tissue regeneration for wound healing by minimizing pain, providing a good wound healing environment, and by reducing scar formation.

The Seminars in Translational Research (STRECH) series is a collaborative project among the:

Both the RCMI and IIMS programs are supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The seminars bring together investigators from basic, clinical, and social sciences to highlight the bidirectional and multiple stages of the scientific translation of research discoveries from the bench to the bedside and to the community. It promotes the formation of multidisciplinary teams from both institutions, and other IIMS partners, that foster the development of innovative theories, approaches, and technologies in clinical and translational research.

Seminars are held monthly, alternating between the UTSA and UTHSCSA campuses.
