Researchers at the University of Brighton are partnering with colleagues at the University’s School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences and other university departments to study ways to induce self-regenerating cells to combat burn injuries. They are using liver stem cells to study the process of regeneration; given the high regenerative capacity of liver cells.

"We live in exciting times for interdisciplinary science, especially in the fields of burns, plastic and reconstructive surgery, wound healing, regenerative medicine and tissue engineering," said Professor Anthony Metcalfe, professor of burns and wounds at the University of Brighton and director of research at the Blond McIndoe Research Foundation, "The unique research endeavors that can be made under this exciting partnership will revolutionize potential therapies for wound healing, for reduction of scarring and restoration of normal tissue architecture for patients suffering from burns and other tissue injuries."

Research such as this project is a great example of how regenerative medicine will lead to new treatments and better outcomes.
