The Matrix Biology and Fibrosis programme represents a research area within the Institute of Molecular and Experimental Medicine at the Cardiff School of Medicine.
Fibrosis and the biology of the extracellular matrix are key research themes within the Institute of Molecular and Experimental Medicine. These aim to facilitate basic and clinical research in the overlapping areas of Chronic Kidney Disease, Peritoneal Inflammation and Fibrosis and Wound Healing. Hypothesis-driven research is conducted by world-class basic science in purpose-built laboratories housed in the Section of Nephrology.
