Over the past several years, Iceland has emerged as a vibrant medical and scientific innovation center, with Kerecis at the forefront of wound healing and tissue repair.
The Northern Lights Wound Workshop is the leading scientific workshop for advancing the knowledge of the utility of fish skin grafts for managing chronic wounds and lower extremity injuries. The scientific workshop entry is competition-based. The exchange of ideas is fostered between all attendees during this exclusive small-capacity event, where attendees present their findings.
