Our goal for this program is to award grants that are scientifically creative and can advance the science of wound healing.

Innovative Grants Program - The Foundation is positioned to expand its research program through additional research grants, fellowships and awards. There is a continuing need to fund new and established investigators engaged in cutting edge research to generate pilot data leading to new innovations to advance the basic and clinical science of wound healing.
