TERMIS 2021 | Researching the impact of innervation on regenerating tissues

Paul Wieringa, PhD, Maastricht University, Maastricht, The Netherlands, describes research on the impact innervation in nociceptors found in the peripheral nervous system in the context of nerve regeneration. Existing in vivo research on skin models highlights the importance of innervation on tissue function and repair in healing wounds and Dr Wieringa highlights the need for 3D in vitro models to apply this research in other tissues. This interview took place at the 6th World Congress of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS 2021).
