Role of Aging in GCN2-dependent wound healing
When a normal healthy adult’s skin is wounded, their skin usually heals without difficulty; however, if a person damages their skin while they are sick or if they have a chronic disease, the wound may not heal as quickly. Also, as we age, the wound healing process is slowed and delayed. The purpose of this study is to examine acute wound healing to determine whether a specific mechanism in how we respond to stress plays a role in the aging-related decline in wound healing. It will determine whether defects in this stress response occur with age and if it suppresses wound healing.
