Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate


An ongoing study is developing an artificial skin that would heal and function like normal skin and could be used successfully for large burns or surgical reconstruction. The artificial skin scaffold is being bioengineered to promote tissue regeneration and even direct cell growth for hair follicles and sweat glands so that the new skin would look and feel like normal skin.
