Project Title: The Role of fibroblast phenotype and pericellular matrix in wound healing
 

                                                                                                                                                     
 

Upon completing my undergrad in Cell Biology and Genetics at UBC in 2010, I immediately began my Master’s of Science in the program of Cell and Developmental Biology. My project is investigating the role of the pericellular matrix in wound healing by comparing the composition gingival fibroblast-derived and skin fibroblast-derived extracellular matrix and how these matrices may differentially regulate cell functions. Since wound healing in the oral mucosa results in reduced scarring, while wound healing in skin results in scarring, comparing the cellular microenvironments may provide novel information about the factors that regulate scar formation.
Aside from being in the lab, I have a huge passion for hockey (Go Canucks Go!). Not only do I watch the game and I have played ice hockey since I was 8 years old. My other hobbies is playing basketball, golf and trying new cuisine.
