Author information: (1)*Department of Emergency Medicine, Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, New York; and †Department of Surgery, University of Cincinnati, Ohio. In 2016 the American Burn Association held a State of the Science conference to help identify burn research priorities for the next decade. The current paper summarizes the work of the sub-committee on Burn Wound Healing and Tissue Engineering. We first present the priorities in wound healing research over the next 10 years. We then summarize the current state of the science related to burn wound healing and tissue engineering including determination of burn depth, limiting burn injury progression, eschar removal, management of microbial contamination and wound infection, measuring wound closure, accelerating wound healing and durable wound closure, and skin substitutes and tissue engineering. Finally, a summary of the round table discussion is presented. DOI: 10.1097/BCR.0000000000000538 PMCID: PMC5461657 PMID: 28328668 [Indexed for MEDLINE]
