The web of life

Cells are the building blocks of our tissues and organs. This is an epithelial cell from the outer layer of your skin, stained to show the structural components. These cells can move to repair damage to the skin to restore the function of this important barrier organ. This cell has been treated to block the migratory mechanisms and is unable to move.

My lab investigates the mechanisms that underpin skin wound healing and scarring to find treatments to help heal chronic wounds and reduce wound scarring and fibrosis.
