NHS launches quest to eliminate scars 'within a generation'

NHS launches quest to eliminate scars 'within a generation' The NHS has launched a project to find medical cures for all types of scar as it opens the world’s first scarring research centre in response to wounded veterans and rising crime.

Experts say they aim to eliminate all scarring “within a generation” and transform the emergency care given to victims of trauma ranging from acid attacks and stabbing to terrorism and war.

Using money from fines levied against banks for financial misconduct, the new Centre for Conflict Wound Research at Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital will investigate the fundamental molecular process that leads to scarring. The Daily Telegraph
