Tissue repair continues to present significant challenges to biomedical scientists and clinicians wishing to understand and manipulate its associated biological processes to facilitate wound healing while also preventing fibrotic complications. My research interests represent a long-term effort to better understand how wound healing can be optimized to benefit patients who suffer from chronic wounds or problematic scarring.  These efforts include translational research studies into the roles of the extracellular matrix and microbiome in wound healing and fibrosis  as well as clinical studies on the impact of diabetes, nicotine, and other risk factors for poor healing.
