ARTcut: Standardized injury of skin models for wound healing research

Interview with Dr. Jörn Probst, Management Healthcare, Fraunhofer ISC (Germany)

Comparative research models are indispensable in wound healing research to evaluate new treatments of chronic wounds. Consequently, studies need to exhibit equivalent basic prerequisites and be conducted on similar wounds. This is why a team of researchers is working on an automated process to place standardized wounds in skin models.
