Research Spotlight

Gregory S. Schultz, PhD

Dr. Schultz, a UF Research Foundation Professor, leads the Institute for Wound Research, housed within our department, where his efforts focus on the molecular regulation of wound healing and the imbalances that lead to chronic wounds or hypertrophic scars. His anti-scarring research focuses on important growth factor systems that regulate scarring. Target tissues include skin, cornea, and peritoneal adhesions. He currently is conducting clinical trials on a rapid point-of-care detector for biomarker proteins, bacteria, fungi, and viruses, which will be used to diagnose very early traumatic brain injury in patients or soldiers.
