Research Expertise

Description

Odhran is involved in both clinical and basic science research and is particularly interested in Burn injury and reconstruction. He is involved in collaborative research of inflammatory and fibrotic effects following burn injury, as well as supporting and developing burn care research capacity in West Africa. He has published on regulatory interactions between innate and adaptive immunity following burn injury. He is the deputy Chair of the Scar alliance partnered with colleagues at the University of Birmingham, and University College London to determine interactions between adipocytes and fibroblasts in scarring and fibrosis. His clinical research is directed at evolving therapies to improve scar outcome following injury including Laser therapy, Mechanical scar massage and structural fat grafting. He is also working to determine the effects of age and frailty on patients following injury to better identify patients at greater risk of a poor outcome following injury ,examining the ability of scoring systems to predict survival following injury and the recognition of frailty rather than age as a factor influencing outcome and survival.
