Dongsheng Jiang is interested in fundamental questions of how skin develops during embryonic development and how scar develops during wound healing. His current research focuses on fibroblast heterogeneity, subcutaneous fascia, skin scarring. The overall aim of his research is to develop therapeutic options for chronic skin wounds with reduced scarring and enhanced regeneration.
Dongsheng Jiang’s dermatological research started in Prof. Karin Scharffetter-Kochanek’s lab, at Ulm University, during his first postdoc study, which was focused on mesenchymal stem cells, skin wound healing, and skin aging. He was invovled in MSc courses in the international graduate school. He led a Baustein research project on wound healing in elderly population during 2014-2016, and published the results in Wound Repair and Regeneration as the corresponding author.
