Study of scarless wound healing goes digital with 5-year, $3.3 million NIH grant to UCI trio

Wound healing is a complex process that involves intricate interplay among multiple skin and immune cell types. When optimal conditions are achieved, wounds can heal by true regeneration, when new hairs and new adipose tissue re-form. However, more commonly, optimal conditions cannot be achieved, and wounds heal by making scars. To help foster true regeneration, […]
