2018 Cutaneous Biology

Dr Lyn Wise

Dr Lyn Wise is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology at the University of Otago, in the deep south of New Zealand. Lyn trained as a molecular virologist, but made the shift to wound healing research during her PhD when she discovered how viruses manipulate the healing and scarring processes of the skin to increase their own survival, by stealing our own growth factors and cytokines to use against us. Her recent research endeavours have been funded by the Health Research Council of New Zealand and have focused on exploiting the knowledge generated studying microbe-host interactions to develop new biological therapies for both human and veterinary wound complications.
