Research in Dr. McAnulty's laboratory is currently focused on studies on engineering the molecular basis of wound surfaces for augmentation of healing and suppression or dissolution of bacterial biofilms from the wound surface. This work is focused on methods for attachment of various active molecules to the wound surface to alter the wound surface characteristics and properties at the nanoscale level. These studies involve a multilaboratory and multiinstitutional collaborative group and are funded by the National Institutes of Health. Other research involves studies on mechanisms of cellular injury during hypothermia and ischemia. These studies relate to both low temperature cardiopulmonary bypass methods and to organ preservation for transplantation. The thrust of this work is to reduce injury to organs stored for transplantation in order to reduce the incidence of delayed function and chronic allograft nephropathy as well as to increase the donor organ supply for human transplantation and to advance the field of veterinary transplantation.
