The Plastic Surgery Research Council is the pre-eminent research organization in plastic surgery. Those of us that value research and the role it plays in our specialty also have a special place in our heart for the Research Council. PSRC’s Baronio Fund was created years ago as a way to build a corpus of assets and reserves so that the Research Council may ensure the support of its mission to stimulate fundamental research in plastic surgery.
