We are a NIH R01 and VA-Merit (R01-equivalent) funded laboratory. Our group studies how injured tissues heal, and in some cases, how injured tissues regenerate without a scar. We have innovated new methods for studying wound healing and tissue regeneration in mice and humans. Based on our own findings, we are actively running clinical trials to bring these therapies to the clinic. Our group also studies inflammatory skin diseases. We collect human patient samples and perform genome-wide studies to dissect the underlying pathophysiology of disease.
