Our division hosts a monthly research series showcasing basic science, translational, and innovative research. As well, special topics and speakers relevant to plastic and reconstructive surgery will follow. This series covers a wide-range of research topics and translational efforts pertinent to Plastic Surgery – i.e. animal models and findings for surgery, cutting-edge surgical techniques, entrepreneurship in surgery, and many more! 

We usually meet each month on the 4th Thursday at 5-6pm via Zoom. Please email Dr. Matthew Wood (woodmd@wustl.edu) for the Zoom link.

We hope to see you there!
