PSEN captures AAHS ASPN ASRM Annual Meetings

Last month, PSEN was a part of the annual meetings of our founding partners, the American Association for Hand Surgery, American Society for Peripheral Nerve and American Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery on January 9-15, 2013 in Naples, Florida. In addition to providing demos of the website in the meeting exhibit hall, PSEN’s video news crew interviewed a number of attendees about the scientific highlights of the clinical programs, as seen in the video above. PSEN also recorded over 30 hours of panels and lecture presentations from the meetings. A selection is now available to view in the PSEN presentations area. More lecture recordings from the meetings will be posted over the next couple of weeks. Some of the presentation topics include:

  • Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine
