Tissue Repair

This is an area of research that aims to investigate the basic mechanisms of tissue repair; this information can then be used to find novel cell- or drug-based therapies to repair tissue that has been damaged due to disease, trauma or congenital conditions. The programme is based on Edinburgh's combination of strengths in different disciplines including stem cells and regenerative medicine, inflammation and fibrosis biology together with a wide range of clearly defined tissue and animal model systems.
