Partner: ReSurge International

REAL SKIN aims to design an innovative and affordable solution enabling surgical teams in Nepal to more effectively treat acute burn patients. REAL SKIN is working to establish Nepal’s first ever skin bank, in an effort to reduce burn wound infection and save patient lives. A skin bank is an establishment that collects and recovers human cadaver tissue (skin) for the purposes of clinical use and patient treatment. Learn more about REAL SKIN’s work on their project blog:
