Hot off the press: high-throughput skin burn wound model for infection control

A paper I co-authored with the team led by Dr Brian Jones (University of Bath) has just been published in the journal Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology. This is an open-access publication and you can grab a copy by following this link.

The paper describes a burn wound model that enables high-throughput evaluation of wound control measures. It is based on ex vivo (i.e. freshly excised) porcine skin that is both anatomically relevant and biologically responsive, and therefore superior to most in vitro models currently available.

I am glad to have contributed to this paper, and am pleased to introduce it to my readers.
