Rozita Takjoo explored the potential of peptides as wound healing agents. She identified a bioactive region involved in cell proliferation and provided insight into the evolution of a disulfide-rich motif. These outcomes are likely to facilitate future drug development studies aimed at developing novel wound healing agents for diabetic ulcers.
