Our mission is to help the body repair damaged tissues. During the clinical application of biomaterials designed for various applications, we recognized the importance of immune responses in the wound healing process. This led to the birth of “regenerative immunology.” We now work to characterize the cellular and molecular environments of healing versus non-healing wounds and tumors and to develop biomaterials that promote tissue repair.
