There is a strong need of new materials to address current limitations in wound healing and in the translational aspects of wound healing. Progress in this area is limited by the void of information at the molecular level addressing cell-material interactions, at the tissue level addressing the evolution of implantable scaffolds and at the organ level addressing the development of new intervention methods to enhance healing. This thrust aims to create novel materials and experimental techniques to overcome these challenges. By tackling the steps between materials development and implantation, it is generating design rules and predictive models to determine the viability of a material in enhancing wound healing.
