Hello there and thank you for visiting my site!
My name is Alexander, and I have been very interested in an area of research called Human Limb Regeneration since the early 1990s when I first read about the possibility. I also have a keen interest in all areas of regenerative medicine.
What Is Limb Regeneration? To put simply it is about regrowing lost limbs in humans whom have had such injuries.
The purpose of creating this blog is to generate exposure and bring to awareness of the amazing research currently being done by scientists in this field.
It was in April of 2013, when I got more involved and got started into action with seriously researching into Limb Regeneration and what Scientists had done in this area of Regenerative Medicine.
What got me motivated was the Boston bombings and the nature of the horrific injuries that people suffered.
As I watched the news reports, I said to myself we need to fix this.
I concluded that if further research, funding and a greater push in education, then perhaps we could be in a better position to help such people with these kinds of injuries, than what we can provide them at the moment.
So I started researching what developments have been done.
I was amazed how much progress had been accomplished. Now some serious time and money are being spend to make this possible eventually one day.
As mentioned above, I wanted to create this site to raise awareness in this area of regenerative medicine and help provide more interest and encourage more support for scientists. Also in addition I wanted those whom have suffered such injuries to offer hope and inspiration, to show them that there are scientists working full time so that one day it is a reality.
A Little About Me…
I am not a scientist, my background is a Software Engineer, Web Developer and Designer, with around 15 years of experience in the IT Industry. I also like to do blogging, documenting my personal passions and interests with the aim of offering value and solutions in the online community.
Originally I come from Northern Scotland in Britain where I was brought up and lived all my life. I have also traveled and worked in America and Canada.
I worked in the National Health Service in the Highlands of Scotland (NHS Highlands) for 4 years as a Clinical Correspondence Web Developer and I would say it is one of the highlights in my career within the health sector.
It was at this point that I got excellent exposure with my technical skills migrating into Medicine.
Currently I continue to work in the field of IT Software Development and as a Blogger.
