Carisa Cooney, MPH, has been promoted to Assistant Professor of Plastic Surgery. Since joining the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery 3 years ago, she has been instrumental in building the clinical research program, and single-handedly made possible numerous clinical trials, educational projects, and research proposals. Her promotion from Instructor to Assistant Professor also results from her individual scholarly work including original publications and national presentations.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Introduces New Peer Reviewed Journal

Experts in the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery will be releasing a new online and printed peer-reviewed journal about Vascularized Composite Allotransplantation (VCA). Gerald Brandacher, scientific director of the Johns Hopkins Composite Tissue Allotransplantation (Reconstructive Transplant) Program, is the Editor-in-Chief, and W. P. Andrew Lee, director of the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, will serve as the co-editor-in-chief along with David Sachs from Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School.

Vascularized composite allotransplantation is an emerging new era in transplant medicine and has become a viable reconstructive option for patients with extensive tissue defects and severe dysfunctions. VCA is the first multidisciplinary, peer-reviewed, international journal to exclusively focus on this new discipline. It will publish several types of manuscripts and began accepting submissions May 2014.

The Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery had an excellent showing at the Plastic Surgery Research Council held recently in New York City. Of the total 212 research presentations and posters at the meeting, more than 10% (23) were made by department residents, research fellows, students, or faculty members, including two at the Best Paper Plenary Session. Furthermore, Angelo Leto Barone won the coveted Clifford C. Snyder, MD, Award with his presentation on “The Role of Donor Antigen Persistence in Maintaining Immune Tolerance to a Vascularized Composite Allograft.” (Senior author Gerald Brandacher). This represents the third straight year that the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery has won a major PSRC award. For more information: http://www.ps-rc.org/
