Wound healing is a dynamic process requiring a coordinated response to repair the damage. The extracellular matrix assists in providing an interconnected network contributing to both the biochemical and biophysical cues to bring about biological responses in cells/tissues. We have defined and tuneable natural and synthetic biomaterials to establish 3D cell model systems to study these activities using live confocal microscopy to investigate the role of extracellular matrix.
