Bio-engineering skin to treat severe burns

Military researchers are putting the final touches on a study of a “skin substitute” grown from a patient’s own cells to treat complex burns and soft tissue injuries.

The new research study underway at the U.S. Army Institute of Surgical Research in San Antonio holds promise for treating burn patients, including those with severe, life-threatening wounds.
