Spray on Skin

from the early 90s Wood focused her research on improving established techniques of skin repair. Her spray-on skin repair technique involved taking a small patch of healthy skin from a burn victim and using it to grow new skin cells in a laboratory. The new cells were then sprayed onto the patient’s damaged skin. With traditional skin grafts, 21 days were necessary to grow enough cells to cover extensive burns. Using spray-on skin, Wood was able to lower that amount of time to just 5 days.
