Dr Kimberly Mace is a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health at the University of Manchester. She received her PhD from the University of California, San Diego in 2003, and was a Ruth Kirschstein NIH postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, San Franciso from 2003-2007.
She joined the University of Manchester Faculty of Life Sciences as a Healing Foundation Fellow in 2007, focusing her group’s research on the role of inflammation in diabetic chronic wound healing.
Currently, her research is at the cutting edge of understanding how the diabetic environment impacts myeloid cell behaviour via aberrant changes to chromatin regulation and subsequent responsiveness to signal-activated transcription factors, with a focus on the NF-kB pathway. Her group is also investigating methods to reverse these changes to reduce chronic inflammation and improve wound healing.
