Innovations in plastic surgery
We have a diverse program of research with active clinical, translational and basic science projects in areas relevant to plastic surgery. These include regenerative medicine, tissue engineering, computational tissue modeling, 3D manufacturing, wound healing and hemangioma formation and treatment. Our program is funded from sources including the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the Department of Defense and private industry.
Here at The Ohio State University's Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, our faculty are highly involved in ongoing research, as well as making sure students have an opportunity to participate in various research projects within the department. It is recommended that you contact the faculty member you would like to work with directly to begin discussing ideas for research.
The Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery’s research program is part of The Ohio State University College of Medicine’s Office of Research. Our research program is composed of a range of professionals dedicated to conducting clinical, scientific and translational research, with faculty and staff support in areas such as grant writing, research compliance, research strategy and safety.
