    Collapse overview
    Genetic and molecular analyses of epidermal wound response during injury in Drosophila. Overall goal is to use the intersection between epidermal wound response and innate immunity to improve repair strategies in humans. Additional projects in Science Communication and STEM Outreach.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
