The University of South Australia and the Australasian Wound and Tissue Repair Society (AWTRS) invite you to attend the Adelaide Wound Healing Symposium to take place on 27th October 2017, at the Future Industries Institute, Mawson Lakes Campus. The program will feature local and national eminent experts in preclinical and clinical wound healing research presenting the latest innovative approaches for regenerative medicine including topics on burns, diabetes and chronic wounds.
Registration is FREE and all students and ECR's are encouraged to attend and submit poster presentations for which prizes will be awarded. The event will also include the AWTRS AGM, a networking session and refreshments.
We look forward to welcoming all to the Future Industries Institute for this inaugural event.
