The next BioTherapy Live! broadcast is Today! That's right - Today is the third Tuesday of the month, May 17.
At 4:00 pm EDT (1:00 pm Pacific Time) you can catch Dr. Kosta Mumcuoglu, as he teaches us all: "Hirudotherapy and Plastic Surgery: The Israeli Experience."
Dr. Mumcuoglu received his BSc in 1972 and his PhD in 1975, from the University of Basel, Switzerland (Depts of Zoology and Dermatology). He is currently professor at The Hebrew University-Hadassah Medical School, in Jerusalem, where he has been teaching and doing his research for about 40 years. He is, or has been, also a faculty member of universities in Switzerland, Turkey, and Teheran.
He is well-known for his research on parasitic arthropods, such as lice, bed bugs, midges, fleas, mites, and ticks. For the past 30 years, he has been a leading force for research and clinical care in maggot therapy and leech therapy, hence his connection with biotherapy.
In addition to being a member of multiple scientific societies, he is the chair of several, including the International Biotherapy Society
. Dr. Mumcuoglu has received multiple awards for outstanding achievement, including the BTER Foundation's first William S. Baer Award for the Advancement of Biotherapy.
