21-23 October 2015

Copenhagen, Denmark


It is a pleasure to invite you to participate in the 7th Joint Meeting of the European Tissue Repair Society & the Wound Healing Society (ETRS-WHS 2015), which will be held 21-23 October 2015 in Copenhagen, Denmark. ETRS-WHS 2015 is organised by ETRS in cooperation with the Wound Healing Society.

Traditionally and historically, wound healing has always been a challenge and a commitment to ancient medical practitioners, physicians and scientists. No medical area has been more innovative than wound healing. Many therapies derived from either nature’s own pharmacy or from today’s modern molecular laboratories have been successfully introduced to accelerate wound healing. This has taken us very far but still the mechanisms of complicated wound healing are largely hidden.
To approach this huge socioeconomic problem differently the theme “From Bed to Bench” of Copenhagen 2015 ETRS/WHS annual meeting will create a forum to facilitate the translation from the clinical to the experimental side of wound healing.

Under the theme “From Bed to Bench” many aspects concerning tissue repair and regeneration will be discussed; surgical wounds, burns, chronic wounds, diabetic  ulcers, excessive scarring, ageing, wound and scar assessment, biomarkers, systemic and topical therapies, dressings, topical negative pressure, tissue engineering, stem cells, cytokines/growth factors, inflammation, extracellular matrix, angiogenesis, apoptosis, cellular senescence, protease inhibitors, biofilm, bacterial and fungal  infections and health economy.

The conference will be held at Hotel Scandic Copenhagen, located centrally in Copenhagen, Denmark. In addition to the scientific aspects of the conference, the participants will get the opportunity to experience the capital of Denmark with its refreshing, unpretentious and dynamic atmosphere.

We look forward to welcoming you in Copenhagen.
