Areas of Expertise: Mechanisms of Tissue Repair

Brief Description of Research:

Dr. Krause’s NSERC- and CIHR-funded research focuses on understanding the molecular and cellular regulation of tissue regeneration. A main area of interest for his team is how regeneration can be compromised in pathophysiological states such as cancer, diabetes, or aging. His primary research projects aim to identify the mechanisms underlying impaired regeneration of skin and skeletal muscle regeneration in specific disease states, and to develop novel interventions to improve regeneration.
