WHS Session A: Hunt Lecture

In the spirit of the pioneering work of its namesake, the speaker of the Thomas K. Hunt Endowed Lecture is chosen by the Wound Healing Society Foundation for his/her major contributions to scientific inquiry that are likely to advance the field of wound healing. This one-hour lecture will provide an overview of the inspiration for their work, discussion of how the research will impact the field of wound healing and conclude with a vision for the future of research.

WHS Session B: Aging and Senescence

The effects of aging on tissue repair and regeneration are well recognized and significant similarities between chronological and metabolic (epigenetic) aging are beginning to emerge. This session will review current concepts researchers believe can explain the changing capacity of cells to respond to their local surroundings, the differences between aging and senescence and the role of the environment in aging.

WHS Session C: Emerging Technologies for Wound Healing

There are numerous emerging approaches on the horizon that offer the promise to harness the natural biology of wound healing and promote repair. One example stems from the development of novel optical imaging methods that enable an investigation of cell signaling and the progression of repair using the software developed for multidimensional image analysis and enabling a re-interpretation of molecular changes in the wound bed. Yet another originates in the discovery of bacterial communication, signaling trafficking and perception – both between bacteria and between bacteria and eukaryotes. These emerging technologies will be introduced in this session and their possible applications to wound healing discussed in light of the effects on growth factors, matrix remodeling and infection on the wound bed. A panel of wound repair scientists will discuss the impact of these technologies on wound repair.

WHS Session D: Central and Peripheral Nervous System Contribution to the Injury Response

Wound healing is a tremendous challenge for systems biologists because on one hand, the injury is local but on the other, the response is systemic. In addition to the trafficking of inflammatory (and anti inflammatory cells) in the wound bed, the central and peripheral nervous systems (CNS and PNS) can participate in the repair and regenerative response. This session will review the mechanisms of CNS involvement in injury, current concepts governing the efferent and afferent pathways affected by wounding and the role played by neuro-inflammation.

WHS Session E: Mathematical Modeling of the Wound Bed

With the advent of progress in systems biology and the emergence of “big data”, mathematical methods and computational sciences have the capacity to transform our understanding of wound healing. While still in its infancy, these methods offer the opportunity for in silico research, predictive analyses and drug testing.

WHS Session F (NON-ACCREDITED): Next Generation Grafts and Matrices

The advent of techniques like 3-D printing now introduces the possibility of envisioning a treatment of the personalized wound. When combined with nanoparticles, spatiotemporal drug and biotherapeutics, delivery could address many of the limitations to wound therapeutics. This session will review the needs of the wound healing and injury repair to introduce new ways that next generation matrices might be designed to better promote repair.

The Australasian Wound & Tissue Repair Society is dedicated to improving wound healing and tissue repair through education, research, and practice. The society will moderate a session of oral presentations by its membership and present their approaches to different aspects of wound healing and tissue repair research basic science to clinical aspects of injury repair.

WHS Session J: The Acute Wound: Predicting the Progression to Chronic
All chronic wounds share the characteristic that they were once acute wounds. Accordingly, identifying and understanding the mechanisms that might forecast the conversion of acute to chronicity is critical. This session will review the characteristics of a range of wound types and discuss the potential of modern genomics, personalized medicines and prognostic technologies to predict progression of acute to chronic injury.

WHS Session M: Wound Heterogeneity: Location Matters

The advent of personalized medicine opens the possibility of developing individualized treatments for different injuries. Yet investigators often overlook the fact that different “skins” in different areas can repair differently with scarring: with and without scarring, for example. This session will review the regional differences in skin biology, the changing micro-biome in different areas of skin and the impact the local environment can have on the natural processes of repair.

WHS Day 3 General Session - Flies, Fish and Mice: What They Tell us about Wound Healing
Model organisms including fruitflies, zebrafish and mouse have enabled us to uncover the fundamental and conserved mechanisms that underpin wound healing and have revealed the cells and genes that control wound re-epithelialisation and scarring. These studies have led to potential therapeutic targets to dampen fibrosis and “kick start” chronic wounds.

WHS Session N: Vascular Normalization after Injury
Whereas angiogenesis has been considered a primary event controlling repair and regeneration, it is only part of the vascular processes of wound repair. Before angiogenesis occurs, there is a dramatic change in vascular permeability that enables sentinel cells to enter and traffic through the wound. After angiogenesis, there is a timely involution of blood vessels that appears to be equally important for injury resolution. The session will review the dynamic processes required for vascular patency during and after wound healing and differentiate the roles of angiogenesis from vasculogenesis.
