New developments in pediatric plastic surgery research CLINICS IN PLASTIC SURGERY Nacamuli, R. P., Wan, D. C., Lenton, K. A., Longaker, M. T. 2005; 32 (1): 123-?


Pediatric plastic surgery research is a rapidly expanding field. Unique in many ways, researchers in this field stand at the union of multiple scientific specialties, including biomedical engineering, tissue engineering, polymer science, molecular biology, developmental biology, and genetics. The goal of this scientific effort is to translate research advances into improved treatments for children with congenital and acquired defects. Although the last decade has seen a dramatic acceleration in research related to pediatric plastic surgery, the next 10 years will no doubt lead to novel treatment strategies with improved clinical outcomes.
