Professor and Director for the UIC Center for Wound Healing and Tissue Regeneration
Dr. Luisa DiPietro and her colleagues are developing therapies that will allow humans to regenerate perfect tissue after an injury.
DiPietro is director of the Center for Wound Healing and Tissue Regeneration, a multidisciplinary center that investigates the body’s reaction to injury and mechanisms of repair and regeneration of tissues.
Her research comparing healing in the oral mucosa to the skin has shown that injured tissue in the mouth repairs with less inflammation and with growth of an ideal number of blood vessels.
DiPietro also a professor of periodontics and the UIC scientific director for the Chicago Biomedical Consortium.
