As a bright scientist, Dr. Hamed contributed significant knowledge to the field of cardio-vascular research and regenerative medicine. His early publications were the first to address directly the beneficial effect of erythropoietin on wound healing. The research performed by Dr. Hamed found that repurposing of erythropoietin for wound healing especially for diabetic foot ulcers, appears to be an excellent option because actually there is no approved drugs for this challenging problem. These publications document this emerging problem but guide primary care providers and geriatric health providers to recognize the potential use of erythropoietin in wound healing, assess the nature of the problem and apply it for wound healing. In addition, Dr. Hamed contributed to the research of the effectiveness of erythropoietin in various indications such as for bone regeneration and autologous fat transplantation. These studies emphasized contextual factors in the nonhematopoietic targets of erythropoietin.
