Work Contribution within RESOLVE

The Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery focuses on skin repair in animal experiments (WP 1) and on clinical research (WP 2), in order to provide data on individuals with different age, distinct physiological and pathophysiological conditions after surgical skin repair with varying genetic backgrounds and premorbid conditions.

Main project tasks:
- primary wound healing in normal mice after surgery
- primary and secondary wound healing in non-diabetic individuals and hypertrophic scarring
- chronic wound healing in atherosclerotic tissue due to Diabetes mellitus type 2

Besides consulting, reviewing and improving the work and research progress of RESOLVE, we provide active support in the execution of studies on secondary skin wound healing in diabetic mice and on keloid formation in Black African patients.
