Artificial Skin—Ioannis V. Yannas

These days, surgeons are trained in implanting artificial skin on burn patients thanks to the pioneering work of Ioannis V. Yannas, MIT professor of polymer science and engineering, and trauma surgeon Dr. John F. Burke, who established the Massachusetts General Hospital Burn Research Center. This video highlights how their medical collaboration during the 1970s aids patients who have lost their dermis, a layer about two millimeters thick that lies beneath the epidermis and which does not regenerate when damaged. View this video in its entirety at the From the Vault collection at TechTV.
