This forum is the first academic exchange activity organized by the International Society for Regenerative Medicine and Wound Repair in collaboration with Ukraine's burn institutions since the introduction of regenerative medical technology into Ukraine in 2021. It will help the promotion of regenerative medical technology in Ukraine. We will continue to strengthen academic exchange to further promote regenerative medical technology, so that it will benefit more patients.
