2018-2019 Initiatives

  • Obtain approval from AST Board for joint “super committee.”
  • Initiate meetings to discuss details of “consortium.”
  • Consider AST partnership with American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery to offer grant support in the VCA.
  • As the leader in VCA microsurgery/basic research field, the Johns Hopkins Group may organize a microsurgery course in mouse/rat VCA techniques. This is certainly missing, and many want to learn how to perform these most complicated microsurgery procedures.
