The Wound Healing Foundation is excited to announce the H. Paul Ehrlich Rising Star in Wound Healing award. Dr. Ehrlich was a nationally and internationally recognized scientist in wound healing and scar research, who made a major impact in protein and collagen synthesis and catabolism in wound healing. Dr. Ehrlich was a founding member of the Wound Healing Society and its second president. Dr Ehrlich faithfully served the Wound Healing Foundation continuously as a Board of Director for 13 years and as Foundation Awards Chair for 15 years. He was a staunch supporter of young investigator research and a great mentor. He understood how much an award could impact a young investigator's career, and he made major contributions to the success of numerous research and educational efforts of the Foundation and the Society.
