Question: is your work based on helping people with 2nd or 3rd degree burns

  1. Great question! And indeed you are right!!

    My work was actually based upon a technique used to “grow” skin for patients with severe burns in the lab and then transplanting it back onto the body.

    A famous Australian scientist, Dr Fiona Wood, also invented a “Spray-on skin” method of spraying a thin layer of skin cells back onto the patients skin to speed up healing. You can read more about here at

    The main difference is, for patients, usually an artificial material is used to grow skin cells on before transplanting it back onto the body. In my case, I am using actual skin from patient donors to grow my skin cells on, so they are in more of a “natural” environment.
