The Symposium on Advanced Wound Care Spring/Wound Healing Society (SAWC Spring/WHS) is pleased to present Anthony Atala, MD, as the 2014 Keynote Speaker. His accredited presentation, Regenerative Medicine: New Approaches to Healthcare, will take place on the first full day of the conference, Thursday, April 24 at 3:00 pm ET, at the Gaylord Palms Hotel & Convention Center in Orlando, FL.

Considered a pioneer in the area of regenerative medicine, Dr. Atala focuses on growing new human cells, tissues and organs at the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM) in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

WFIRM is recognized as a leader in the translation of scientific discoveries into therapies to benefit patients. Under the leadership of Dr. Atala, approximately 300 scientists and staff collaborate on regenerative medicine initiatives at the institute, and were the first in the world to engineer laboratory-grown organs that were successfully implanted into humans. WFIRM is currently involved in the full spectrum of activities required to move technologies from basic research to commercialization and the clinic, including clinical trials using scanner/printer technologies to repair and replace damaged tissue.

"We have many challenges to meet, but are optimistic about the ability of the field to have a significant impact on human health,” said Dr. Atala. “We believe regenerative medicine promises to be one of the most pervasive influences on public health in the modern era.”
