The immune system is the first responder to trauma and foreign bodies such as biomaterials, yet this response and its capacity to orchestrate tissue repair has been largely ignored. Translating tissue engineering technologies to the clinic for multiple clinical applications, we discovered unexpected responses from the adaptive immune system. We are now comparing the immune profile of biomaterials and wounds that repair versus those that succumb to fibrosis and tissue degeneration to design regenerative immunotherapies.
