Appeal To All Plastic Surgeons For Donor Skin

Dear Colleagues,

The Department of Experimental Dermatology, Queen Mary University of London, at the Blizzard Institute is desperately in need of donor skin to research pioneering work on Psoriasis, biofilm and wound healing. I have been involved with them since the 1980’s and the research is truly worldclass. If you are practicing as a Plastic Surgeon in London and have cases such as Facelift, Breast Reduction, Mastopexy and Abdominoplasty booked, could you please consider gaining informed consent to the release of surplus skin to the QMUL.The relevant forms for consent are available. If you are willing to help provide skin, you will be included as coauthor in any subsequent publications. If you are interested in joining the research group please contact me at :

Yours truly,
James D Frame FRCS(Plast)
President UKAAPS
Professor of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery
The School of Medicine
Anglia Ruskin University.

UKAAPS was formed to play a fundamental role in educating the public on the benefits and risks associated with Plastic Surgery. UKAAPS is the only UK association whose membership is only available to fully accredited plastic surgeons that practice non-surgical aesthetics and aesthetic/cosmetic surgery.
