Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

We are broadly interested in understanding the response to injury by studying the cellular responses to stress. Many of the molecular pathways involved in the response to injury have protective or regenerative functions. The ultimate goal of these studies is to better understand how organisms heal and repair injury with an eye towards applying this knowledge in regenerative medicine strategies.

We are currently examining the role of a cellular stress response in wound healing. Another project looks at the role of the matricellular protein, Del1, in the skeletal pathology. And finally, we are interested in the molecular control of genes important in fracture healing.
