CO - Wound healing in the lab

Learning Objectives:

Following this session the participants should be able to:

  1. define basic structures and organization of a wound healing laboratory;
  2. discuss important areas of research in wound healing for the diagnosis and treatment of different diseases;
  3. identify new and emerging laboratory techniques for a wide variety of research activities in wound healing.


This course will comprehensively review new developments in research area dealing with wound management. The focus of this course is to increase awareness of available testing, discuss appropriate and evidence-based applications, and provide basic insight on performing and interpreting select tests.
