I study the roles of the ß2-adrenoceptor and endogenous cues in skin wound repair and scarring and delineate the underpinning mechanisms which promote tissue regeneration over fibrosis. The physiological processes of inflammation, re-epithelialisation, angiogenesis, dermal remodelling and scarring are studied in detail using a range of in vitro, ex-vivo and in vivo models.
