Expertise: Fibroblast Biology, Wound Healing, Hemostasis, Small and Large Animal Modeling

Work in the Carlson Laboratory has focused on 1) mechanical and cytokine regulation of fibroblast proliferation, apoptosis, matrix contractionm and motility in 3D tissue culture; 2) mechanisms and regulation of dermal wound contraction in rodent models; and 3) development of improved hemostatic bandages/devices for severe hemorrhage. In addition, plans have been formulated to develop porcine models for (i) specific cancers, (ii) end-organ dysfunction from atherosclerosis, and (iii) regenerative medicine.
