Research Description: Over 100 million patients acquire scars in the industrialized world each year. The global incidence of scarring is even greater, extending to significant numbers of burn and other trauma-related wounds. Beyond aesthetic considerations and potential disfigurement, scarring can result in restriction of movement and reduced quality of life. Graham’s research is centered on developing novel therapeutic approaches to scarring and fibrosis through the characterization and targeted inhibition of embryonic fibroblast lineages in the skin.
