Research in the Shaw lab focuses on wound healing in the skin and the ovaries. We are particularly interested in how tissue repair processes go wrong, resulting in pathological scars such as keloids. We have been working to understand the epigenetic regulation of the differentiation process that gives rise to scar-forming cells. Additionally, we are investigating how stress and inflammation influence the fibrotic process.
