Organisation profile

The International Center for Wound Repair and Regeneration” (iWRR) in NCKU was established via integrating cross-disciplinary scientists in 2012. Under the mentorship of Dr. Cheng-Ming Chuong and the leadership of the directors, Professor De-Hua Wang (2012/~2013/7), Professor Shyh-Jou Shieh (2013/8~2016/7, and Professor Ming-Jer Tang (2016/8~), iWRR has tackled issues involved in normal and hypertrophic scar, keloid, wound-induced hair follicle neogenesis and alopecia. With our continuous efforts, more than 60 SCI paper were published in high impact journals since 2013. In 2018, iWRR receives the integrative funds from the Ministry of Education's Higher Education and Deep Cultivation Center, and the Ministry of Science and Technology's over-the-counter funding. This is the most important gift as well as a heavy responsibility for the iWRR members. As the old saying goes: An educated person cannot but be resolute and broad-minded, for he/she has taken up a heavy responsibility and a long course. Thus, all the iWRR members will strive to make the greatest contribution to society.
