Penn Dental Medicine team identifies molecule critical to healing wounds

Skin provides a first line of defense against viruses, bacteria and parasites that might otherwise make people ill. When an injury breaks that barrier, a systematic chain of molecular signaling launches to close the wound and re-establish the skin’s layer of protection. A study led by researchers from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Dental Medicine now shows that the molecule FOX01 is critical to the wound-healing process.
