Marie Curie PhD fellowship / Molecular profiling of cells during regeneration: cell diversity and evolution across phyla

Posted by on December 5th, 2017

A 3-year PhD fellowship in evolutionary developmental biology and genomics is available in the lab of Michalis Averof, at the Institut de Génomique Fonctionnelle de Lyon (IGFL) in France. The fellowship is funded by the Marie Curie ITN programme EvoCELL. Some animals have the ability to regenerate parts of their body (limbs, tail, internal organs)[…]

A day in the life of a modern Lernaean Hydra…

Posted by on July 3rd, 2017

I am Eleni Chrysostomou, a PhD student in Uri Frank‘s lab at the National University of Ireland, Galway. The Frank lab’s general interest is development and regeneration, stem and germ cell biology, neural fate commitment, and the chromatin biology underlying these processes. The focus of my project is the roles of SoxB transcription factors (TFs)[…]

Biologists find ‘skin-and-bones’ mechanism underlying zebrafish fin regeneration

Posted by on March 28th, 2017

This Press Release from the University of Oregon was originally posted on Eurekalert.   EUGENE, Ore. March 28, 2017 University of Oregon biologists have figured out how zebrafish perfectly regenerate amputated fins with a precisely organized skeleton. Adult zebrafish fins, including their complex skeleton, regenerate exactly to their original form within two weeks after an[…]

Turning lemons into lemonade…sick planarians reveal link between microbiome and regeneration

Posted by on September 30th, 2016

Commentary on Pathogenic shifts in endogenous microbiota impede tissue regeneration via distinct activation of TAK1/MKK/p38 in eLife 2016; 5: e16793 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.7554/eLife.16793   During our research as biologists we endure numerous problems, failures, and setbacks in our efforts to advance scientific knowledge. But sometimes the very problems we encounter are opportunities in disguise. This was[…]

The people behind the papers: Adam Johnston

Posted by on September 26th, 2016

Today we feature an upcoming paper in Cell Stem Cell that investigates the role of Schwann cell precursors in the multi-tissue regeneration of the adult mammalian distal digit tip.  We caught up with lead author Adam Johnston, who carried out the work in Freda Miller’s lab in the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, and has since started his[…]

Scratching the surface of a rainbow

Posted by on April 26th, 2016

  Why some vertebrates like salamanders and zebrafish are able to regenerate complex tissues while humans cannot is a question that has fascinated biologists for centuries. Understanding how and why regeneration occurs in these animals can inspire novel treatment strategies for regenerative medicine. At the cellular level, the regeneration process is driven by dynamic activities[…]

Transdifferentiation and Tissue Plasticity in Cardiovascular Rejuvenation: a workshop about protein teamwork, regeneration programs and tiny needles

Posted by on April 21st, 2016

It was on the 7th of February of 2016 when 20 leading scientists from all over the world headed to the historic Wiston House in West Sussex, England, to spend four days in focused atmosphere discussing new insights in cardiovascular research: the workshop for Transdifferentiation and Tissue Plasticity in Cardiovascular Rejuvenation. Supported by the Company[…]
