    • A team of scientists from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania found a way to get skin to regenerate using fat cells.
    • According to the researchers, the secret is to regenerate hair follicles first – the fat will regenerate in response to the signals from those follicles
    “The findings show we have a window of opportunity after wounding to influence the tissue to regenerate rather than scar,” said the study’s lead author Maksim Plikus, PhD, an assistant professor of Developmental and Cell Biology at the University of California, Irvine.
