The people behind the papers – Salome Stierli and Alison Lloyd

Posted by on January 17th, 2019

This interview, the 54th in our series, was published in Development last year In contrast to nerves in the central nervous system, peripheral nerves are highly regenerative following injury. Regeneration is critically dependent on Schwann cells, the main glial cell type of the peripheral nervous system, but whether an additional stem cell or progenitor population also contributes[…]

Postdoc in computational single-cell biology in planarians

Posted by on January 15th, 2019

The Solana lab is looking for a postdoctoral computational researcher to work on single-cell transcriptomic and genomics of planarian stem cell differentiation. Our lab just started in Oxford Brookes University. We are currently three lab members but we will expand soon. We recently obtained funding from the MRC to expand our single-cell analysis of planarian[…]

BSDB Gurdon/The Company of Biologists Summer Studentship Report #23 – Oliver Beaven

Posted by on December 17th, 2018

Established  by the British Society for Developmental Biology in 2014, The Gurdon/The Company of Biologists Summer Studentship scheme provides financial support to allow highly motivated undergraduate students an opportunity to engage in practical research during their summer vacation. Each year, ten successful applicants spend eight weeks in the research laboratories of their choices, and the feedback[…]

A day in the life of a colonial tunicate laboratory

Posted by on August 28th, 2018

Have you heard of an animal that can lose most of its body tissues and the remnant tissues aggregate to regenerate the lost parts and recovery its original form? Do you know an animal that can quickly colonize marine surfaces by asexual reproduction, just like weed would in terrestrial environments ? Do you know an[…]

A day in the life of a Capitella teleta lab

Posted by on July 10th, 2018

It’s undoubtedly the middle of summer here in Saint Augustine, Florida. Daily temperatures are soaring into the 90s, and we’re grateful if the humidity dips below 70%. Thankfully, the Seaver lab doesn’t have to contend with much of this heat. Instead, our members are inside, comfortable though busier than ever, mentoring summer interns, piloting new[…]

Lab Technician University of Utah

Posted by on June 4th, 2018

Looking to conduct research in molecular biology and genetics? We are looking for a lab technician to assist in research on muscle stem cells, development, regeneration, disease, and evolution. More details about our research can be found at http://www.kardonlab.org/. Technician will assist in management of a mouse colony as well as conduct supervised research (leading to[…]

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)[…]

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[…]
