Winthrop Wound Research to Date

In recent years, researchers at the Winthrop Wound Healing Center and their research collaborators have participated in numerous discoveries about the physiological mechanisms underlying non-healing wounds. These findings have led to the identification of candidate molecular and biological markers associated with healing potential, as well as the development of new evidence-based protocols for improved wound healing.

Research on the Physiology of Non-Healing Wounds

The single most important discovery our lab has made is that chronic, non-healing wounds result not from medical errors or patient noncompliance, but from a lack of understanding about the physiology of non-healing ulcers at the molecular and cellular level. Our other major accomplishments in the research of complex wounds include the following (for more information, click on the links below):
