Gerhard S. Mundinger, M.D.Gerhard
Salomo ("Sol") Mundinger is currently an integrated plastic surgery
in the Johns Hopkins Hospital / University of Maryland Medical Center
Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery program. His clinical and research
include microsurgery, craniofacial reconstruction, vascularized
composite tissue allotransplantation (hand and face transplantation),
vascularized bone marrow transplantation, and lymphatic regeneration
Mundinger was born in Washington, D.C, and grew up in Madison,
Mississippi, where he attended Saint Andrew's Epsicopal School.
He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Michigan,
majoring in Biology, Environmental Policy and Behavior, and
Resource Ecology and Mangement. He attended medical school
at Johns Hopkins University, during which time he completed a year
of dedicated research in the Surgery Branch and Laboratory of Pathology
at the National Institutes of Health under a Clinical Research Training
Program fellowship. He received an American Association for Cancer
Research Busch Scholar-in-Training Award for his work on reverse phase
protein microarray in 2007. Subsequently, he began residency in the
joint Johns Hopkins Hospital/University of Maryland integrated plastic
surgery residency program. He completed two years of dedicated
research investigating the immunobiology of non-human primate
facial and fibular vascularized composite allografts at the University
of Maryland Medical Center from 2009-2011. During this time, he was
awarded a Plastic Surgery Educational Foundation Fellowship to explore
the ability of vascularized bone marrow transplants to support solid
organ allograft survival and function. He has authored over
fifteen peer-reviewed publications and five book chapters, and has been
an invited speaker at over a dozen national and international
