EWMA 2020: Advanced Therapies: From Biomaterials to Cell Manipulation


This focus session aims at providing attendees with examples of the different strategies being explored for the development of advanced therapies for wound healing. Alongside these therapies, it is expected that basic research and clinical practice objectives in the development of new and better products will become more and more common, ultimately benefiting the quality of healing.
