Spotlight on wound healing

Many different diseases and injuries such as trauma, surgery, burns, poor circulation and pressure can result in acute or chronic wounds, which can have a significant impact on quality of life and significant healthcare costs. Regenerative medicine has great potential to transform the healing of wounds by increasing the speed of healing, and reducing risk of infection and scarring. Furthermore, it has the potential to allow the true regeneration of tissue – including structures such as the sebaceous glands and hair follicles. The spotlight on wound healing will be a 2-month focus on wound healing and regenerative medicine featuring a variety of content types, including journal articles and exclusive features, covering various key topics and issues in the field, such as translating basic research into the clinic.
