I will study the interaction between collagen and large proteoglycans,  especially versican, and the alteration of this interaction in fibrotic matrix. I will try to figure out how versican participate in the plasticity of compacted collagen fibrils and cellular and tissue mechanobiology such as cellular contractile force, tissue contraction and mechanosensing.
