GT launches center to improve recovery of severely injured soldi

Full Summary:

When a soldier is wounded during combat, surgeons must focus on reducing infection and reconstructing damaged bone and tissues. Organizers of the recently established Georgia Tech Center for Advanced Bioengineering for Soldier Survivability want to change that.

Local Tech Wire - June 25, 2009
When a soldier is wounded during combat, surgeons must focus on reducing infection and reconstructing damaged bone and tissues. Technologies that could improve the repair and regeneration processes are being developed in research laboratories across the country, but they are not being moved quickly enough into military trauma centers. Organizers of the recently established Georgia Tech Center for Advanced Bioengineering for Soldier Survivability want to change that. "The goal of the center is to rapidly move new technologies from the laboratory to patients so that we can improve the quality of life for our veterans as they return from the wars the United States is fighting," said center director Barbara Boyan, the Price Gilbert, Jr. Chair in Tissue Engineering at the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University.
