Infection, Immunity, Antimicrobial Resistance and Repair
Full Project Description

Zebrafish have a remarkable ability to regenerate damaged tissues. Tissue repair and regeneration requires communication between multiple different cell types including immune cells, fibroblasts and endothelial cells. Extracellular vesicles (EVs) deliver molecular messages between cells and our data suggests they promote regeneration. This project will determine how EVs might be harnessed to facilitate optimal repair of damaged tissues via influencing inflammation.
