The European Tissue Repair Society (ETRS) is a non-profit organisation aiming to promote knowledge and interchange between scientists, healthcare professionals and industry. The Society concentrates on different aspects of tissue repair, ranging from basic science to clinical aspects of healing.

Nominations for board members were obtained from the Society last spring. Subsequently, board members were elected from a ballot under all ETRS members. Recently, in November 2021, the general assembly of the ETRS was held as a virtual event, where Willeke Daamen, theme Reconstructive & regenerative medicine, was ratified as one of the new board members.

For more information about the ETRS, please visit www.etrs.org.
