Ohio State's Wexner Medical Center
Columbus, OH Franklin
Every month roughly 1,000 patients with chronic, non-healing wounds receive advanced, research-based care at Ohio State's Comprehensive Wound Center (CWC), which opened in 2005 at the Martha Morehouse Medical Plaza on Kenny Road in Columbus. Led by Executive Director Chandan Sen, PhD, the CWC is a hub for wound sciences and care, a place where National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded basic research meets clinical application as the fundamental principles of wound healing — starting at the genetic level — are translated from the lab to the bedside. The program is co-led by highly recognized wound care physicians such as Richard Schlanger, MD, PhD, clinical scientists such as Gayle Gordillo, MD, and genomic experts such as Sashwati Roy, PhD.
