Anna Day: Reduction of In vitro Pseudomonal Biofilm Density Using Hypochlorous Acid

Dr. Robert Ball: (1) Evaluating Endothelial Dysfunction in Burn Patients with Syndecan-1 as a Marker of Glycocalyx Shedding, and (2) Assessing the Safety of Using a Hypochlorous Acid Solution for Intracavitary Irrigation and Lavage

Dr. Juan Sebastian Vazquez: (1) Pursuit of Biomarkers for Radiation Exposure Using a Two Model Approach and (2) A Review of Hydroxocobalamin use in Patients with Inhalation Injury at a Regional Burn Center

Nick Prindeze: (1) Cyanide Toxicity with Inhalational Burn Injury: Mortality Association and Frequency of Treatment and (2) Active Dynamic Thermography: Thermograph Reconstruction Techniques and Modeling

Dr. Lauren Nosanov: (1) Graft Loss: Review of a Single Burn Center’s Experience and Proposal of a Graft Loss Grading Scale and (2) Does Admission GCS Impact Mortality Risk Following Thermal Injury?
