Our lab is primarily a wound healing lab and we work on several aspects of tissue repair. For the longest time we have been investigating how wounds re-epithelialise. Because we think inflammation drives scarring, we have been studying the wound inflammatory response. More recently we have begun to focus also on other cell lineages in wound repair.
And just as Harold Dvorak who famously said that “tumours are wounds that do not heal”, we have been drawn into studying parallels between wound and cancer inflammation.
