AFIRM: Research Areas: Scarless Wound Healing

Scarless Wound Healing

Military trauma creates not only large wounds but also large scars. These scars are often very visible and can often draw unwanted attention to the wounded warrior. In some instances the scars become so thick that they can limit movement of joints and greatly restrict the patient's ability to move.
