|PSRC News: Fall 2019|
Hosted by Dr. Dominik Duscher young plastic surgeons and researchers gathered in the TranslaTUM - Center for Translational Cancer Research in Munich, Germany, in August for the 11th EPSRC Meeting, the leading conference for basic, translational and clinical plastic and aesthetic surgery research in Europe. The secret of EPSRC's success as an outstanding meeting is based on the presentation of high-quality research in all fields of plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery in an informal environment with world-renowned experts. For the 11th meeting the scientific committee reviewed more than 120 abstracts from more than 20 countries worldwide. Of those, 58 long and 35 short oral presentations were selected for an impressive scientific program, encompassing all of plastic surgery with sessions on Stem Cells, Wound Healing, Burns and Scars, Breast Cancer, Bone and Cartilage, Craniofacial, Biomaterials and Nanotechnology, Hand Surgery, Nerves, Education, Training and Technology, Free Tissue Transfer and Aesthetics. In addition to the talks of the selected researchers, outstanding keynote lectures from the "Who is Who" of the international plastic surgery community were delivered including speakers form Germany, Austria, Denmark, USA and Russia. Three young researchers stood out from the crowd of remarkable lectures. Tamara Weiss from the Medical University of Vienna, Austria, Michael Hu from University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, USA, and Zeshaan Maan from Stanford University Medical Center, USA, impressed the audience and shared the first place with 50 out of 50 points each for their paper and presentation. They will present their work at the PRSC Meeting in Toronto in May 2020.
The next EPSRC meeting will be held in August 2020 in Turku, Finland. Please join our 12th captain Salvatore Giordano for this outstanding event full of science, fun and friendship!
