Special Collection: Closing the Gaps in Skin Wound Healing.
Skin is the largest and most accessible organ in the body and any compromise in its integrity results in a healing cascade. Often, underlying pathologies hamper these cascades.

Solutions for dermal wound healing has direct clinical impact in addressing other compromised wounds in other clinical targets where matrix deposition, fibrosis or angiogenesis needs to be modulated.
