Martins-Green's Wound Healing Research is Spotlighted

The research of Manuela Martins-Green, professor in the Department of Cell Biology & Neuroscience and member of the Environmental Toxicology Graduate Program, on the role of reactive oxygen species and bacterial biofilms was recently presented at the annual meeting of the American Society for Cell Biology and spotlighted by UCR Today.  The story has also been picked up by a number of science-related news sites on the web.  The work of Dr. Martins-Green, her associates Sandeep Dhall, Monika Garcia, Danh Do and Neal Schiller showed that by lowering the levels of reactive oxygen species, they could enhance wound healing and reduce the duration of a chronic wound.  Our congratulations to Dr. Martins-Green and her collaborators for their progress in their research and for these nice recognitions. 

Update:  A short video on Dr. Martins-Green's wound healing research has also been produced by the American Society for Cell Biology and can be seen here.
