Aberdeen’s electrical wound healing research hailed as among world’s best

A leading magazine for scientists has deemed pioneering research at Aberdeen so important that it has included it in its guide to the Top 100 Science Stories of 2006.

Professors Min Zhao and Colin McCaig's studies which revealed the impact electricity in our bodies has on healing our wounds was given the accolade by DISCOVER.

The magazine - which is also online - also judged the research by the University of Aberdeen pair to be among the Top 12 Biology Stories of 2006.

The January edition of the magazine contains what it calls a special report on the most interesting, amazing and important science news of the year.

An editorial describes how every year DISCOVER digs through reams of newspapers and gigabytes of web sites to find the 100 most important and interesting science stories.

Professor Zhao, who first became interested in how wounds heal themselves while he was a trauma surgeon in China, said: "We know our research is important as our findings could ultimately lead to new drugs to speed up wound healing, but it is tremendous to be recognised in this way."

Professor McCaig, who is Head of the University's School of Medical Sciences, added: "We are absolutely delighted to be included in this guide to the Top 100 Sciences Stories of 2006.

"Our electrical wound healing work is breaking new ground, and I am happy to say it is just one of a number of leading life science research projects underway at the University of Aberdeen."
