American Burn Association Meeting-2015

Members of the Burn and Surgical Research Team represented The Burn Center, MedStar Washington Hospital Center, and MedStar Health Research Institute at the 47th Annual Meeting of the American Burn Association (ABA) April 21-24 in Chicago, IL. Presentations, awards, and participation were as follows:

Bonnie Carney was honored with the Albert T. McManus Award for Burn Microbiology Best Paper at the ABA 47th Annual Meeting. Ms. Carney’s manuscript was based on the work presented as a poster titled Microbiome sequencing technology reveals the presence of species not currently known to be involved in the pathophysiology of healing wounds in experimental burns.

Jeffrey W. Shupp, MD was named the new Chair of the ABA Research Committee beginning in May 2015. Lauren Moffatt, PhD attended her first Research Committee meeting at the 47thABA meeting as a full member.

Nick J. Prindeze, BS and Taryn E. Travis, MD were selected to participate in the meeting of the ABA Research Special Interest Group at the 47th Annual Meeting. Melissa M. McLawhorn, RN BSN also attended.

Jeffrey W. Shupp, MD moderated a series of panels and poster sessions including those focused on Reconstruction and Translational Science.

Nick J. Prindeze, BS gave a podium presentation titled Active Thermographic Imaging is a Sensitive Method for Distinguishing Burn Conversion and Potentially Salvageable Tissue. His co-authors were Hilary H. Hoffman, BS, Jeremy G. Ardanuy, BS, Bonnie C. Carny, BS, Jenny Zhang, BS, Lauren T. Moffatt, PhD, Jeffrey W. Shupp, MD.

Shawn Tejiram, MD gave a podium presentation titled Vascularity and Perfusion Are Influenced by Compression Therapy in A Porcine Model of Hypertrophic Scar. His co-authors were Taryn E. Travis, MD, Nick J. Prindeze, BS, Bonnie C. Carney, BS, Abdulnaser Alkhalil, PhD, Lauren T. Moffatt, PhD, Jessica C. Ramella-Roman, PhD, Jeffrey W. Shupp, MD.

Taryn E. Travis, MD presented a talk titled Developments in Burn Care Surrounding World War II. This presentation and the associated manuscript (submitted for publication in the Journal of Burn Care and Research) are the result of a year long research project that was funded by the ABA Archives Committee History Grant, which Dr. Travis was awarded last year at the 46th Annual Meeting for her proposal to study this topic.

Poster presentations by the group included:

Characterization of Cellular Dynamics in A Porcine Scar Model Following Application of Pressure Therapy. Shawn Tejiram, MD, Taryn E. Travis, MD, Nick J. Prindeze, BS, Bonnie C. Carney, BS, Abdulnaser Alkhalil, PhD, Lauren T. Moffatt, PhD, Jessica C. Ramella-Roman, PhD, Jeffrey W. Shupp, MD
