Overview: My research topic is around the foreign body reaction (FBR) which describes a patient’s biological response to an implanted material or device, and includes tissue injury, blood-material interactions, provisional matrix formation, acute and chronic inflammation, and fibrous matrix deposition surrounding the implant. The inflammatory response to the implant can impair its performance and lifespan. This research focus is on strategies to attenuate the foreign body response (FBR) towards implanted biomaterial without losing the protection of host immune system.
