Project Description: The PIs have developed a minimally manipulated biomaterial derived from amnion tissue for burns and wounds. Preliminary studies have demonstrated safety and efficacy in wound closure and scar-free healing. This project will focus on the establishment of standard procedures for production, product release criteria, and packaging and storage conditions for the biomaterial.
