Primary focus of our laboratory is to study significance and mechanisms of resolution of inflammation in the tissue repair and regeneration. Specifically we are interested in the role of macrophages in resolution of inflammation during pathological tissue repair such as diabetic wound healing. We use state of the art technologies such as laser capture microdissection and microarray expression (mRNA and miRNA) profiling to address these research questions.
