Current Research

The project is focued on developing immune instructive niches to promote wound healing and suppress fibrosis. It is known that Antigen presenting cells (APCs) such as macrophages and dendritic cells play a crucial rule in orchestrating immune responses against foreign materials.

A large range of biomaterials are used in the fabrication of implantable devices and drug delivery systems. These materials will be in close contact with APCs and characteristics such as surface chemistry and topography of materials have been shown to have a critical role in initiating pro- or anti-inflammatory immune responses by changing APCs morphology, phenotype and function.
