Wound healing after damage to the skin involves a complex interplay between many cellular players of the skin, primarily keratinocytes, fibroblasts, and endothelial cells of vessels, as well as recruited immune cells and their associated extracellular matrix. In healthy individuals, the restoration of a functional epidermal barrier is highly efficient, whereas repair of the deeper dermal layer is less perfect and often results in scar formation with a substantial loss of original tissue structure and function. When the normal wound repair process is impaired, impaired wound healing can lead to chronic wounds or to excessive formation of scar tissue.
Tissue repair is a universal phenomenon across all multicellular organisms, and we think that many wound healing mechanisms can be analyzed in more experimentally tractable models than humans, and can be subsequently extrapolated back to the clinic for potential therapeutic benefits. Because of similarities to humans, in vivo and ex vivo wound healing models are used for investigating repair mechanisms. The aim of this Special Issue to give an update basic, translational, and clinical research related acute and chronic wound healing.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Medicina is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
