Orthocell has today announced the appointment of one of Australia’s most innovative and respected plastic and reconstructive surgeons and researchers, Professor Fiona Wood AM, as an independent Non-Executive Director.
A former Australian of the Year, Professor Wood brings a wealth of experience in navigating pathways for the development and commercialisation of innovative regenerative medicine products, successful international product launches and engagement of strategic partners.
She is most notably recognised for developing and commercialising the RECELL “spray on skin” treatment – which has transformed the recovery path for burns victims. Invented with colleague Marie Stoner, the innovative treatment uses a patient’s own skin cells to help restore damaged skin and significantly reduce permanent scarring.
Orthocell Chair, Mr John Van Der Wielen, said:
“We are delighted to welcome Professor Wood to the Orthocell Board. Professor Wood is a globally recognised plastic and reconstructive surgeon and one of Australia’s most innovative and respected surgeons and researchers.”
“Professor Wood has an unrivalled track record in the development of tissue related medical devices and drugs, including the successful RECELL “spray on skin” treatment for burns. It says a great deal about our Company to secure the services of such a globally recognised professional.”
