Northern Lights Wound Workshop

Medicine and Science under the Northern Lights

Iceland has emerged as a vibrant center for medical and scientific innovation, with Kerecis at the forefront in the area of wound healing and tissue repair.

Kerecis hosts the Northern Lights Wound Workshop twice yearly in Reykjavik to explore highly technical details and new developments of our unique technology. Past events have been chaired by leaders in the wound care field, such as Dr. Robert Kirsner, Dr. John Lantis, Dr. Karl Stark and Dr. David Margolis. Noted dignitaries such as President Olafur Grimsson of Iceland and Admiral Matthias Winter of the United States Navy have also addressed the conference.

The last Northern Lights Wound Workshop took take place in September and included select doctors and medical professionals from both the U.S. and Europe. Dr. John Lantis of Mount Sinai Hospital, New York, chaired the event and was joined by a international panel of leading wound care experts, including Dr. David G. Armstrong, Dr. Dured Dardari and Dr. Windy Cole. The purpose of the workshop was to engage in hands-on training with the Kerecis graft, to exchange best practices across the Atlantic, and to discuss wound care trends.

The Northern Lights Wound Workshop is a two day event. Air travel, meals and lodging for those two nights are covered by Kerecis for invited doctors and medical professionals. Kerecis also organizes extracurricular activities the afternoon of Day 2.

And if the skies cooperate, you can experience the Northern Lights dancing over the city as the workshop is underway.
