Brief description This project will investigate whether a novel type of wound dressing can promote faster wound healing and reduce scarring. Time taken to heal is one of the best predictors of whether a wound will heal with significant scarring. The faster wounds heal the better. We have identified a new dressing with specific nano-scale pores that may promote faster healing. This dressing will be tested in the best model of human wound healing with the potential to progress to clinical trials if successful.
