Research uncovers new mechanisms of wound healing: Human skin possesses pre-installed mechanisms that guide self-repair
The human skin possesses amazing properties. It protects the human body from potential dangers from our environment, it is resilient and flexible, and it makes us capable of sensing the slightest touch.
Researchers at Oslo University Hospital (OUS) and the University of Oslo (UiO) have made new ground-breaking discoveries that show how the skin is automatically repaired after injury. The results have recently been published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) USA.
