Scientists reprogram cells in mice to heal skin wounds

from Interesting Engineering

A new method for treating skin wounds in mice has been discovered by scientists from the Salk Institute in La Jolla, California. The research involves tricking cells in wounds into becoming healing surface skin cells. When a person or animal suffers a skin wound, epithelial cells, which make up the outer layer of the skin, move towards the affected area in order to seal the injury. This healing process is impaired with very large ruptures or in older people. more
