My research interests are focused on wound healing and how the composition of scar-associated matrices comprising protein components such as fibronectin and tenascin-C can modulate wound cell biology and affect the regeneration and differentiation of structures including dermis, blood vessels, and nerves. Current projects include: understanding the molecular mechanisms of cellular-matrix interactions for enhancement of wound healing, the role of scar matrix in recovery from nerve injury, and manipulating the microenvironment to enhance tissue protection after ischemia/reperfusion injury.
