2 Fully-Funded Postdoc Positions in Regenerative Medicine

Posted by on June 17th, 2019

Rita Levi-Montalcini Postdoctoral Fellowship in Regenerative Medicine The Center of Regenerative Medicine at Washington University in St. Louis invites applications for Rita Levi-Montalcini Postdoctoral Fellows in Regenerative Medicine program. These fellowships honor Rita Levi-Montalcini, whose Nobel-winning discovery of Nerve Growth Factor was among the first regenerative biology research to be done at WUSTL. The Center[…]

Embryonic development inspires regenerative medicine

Posted by on November 27th, 2017

The European Molecular Biology Lab (EMBL) in Barcelona and IRB Barcelona bring together leading scientists in the conference “Morphogenetic Engineering”, an event supported by the BBVA Foundation. The merge of various disciplines of developmental biology is key to enhancing our knowledge of tissue development and repair, processes that find their most direct applications in regenerative[…]

Title: The role and regulation of metabolic reprogramming during successful appendage regeneration Supervisors: Professors Enrique Amaya and Royston Goodacre, University of Manchester Application deadline: January 30, 2015 Description: Many vertebrate species, including fish, amphibians and reptiles, have the ability to regenerate their appendages following amputation [1,2]. The regeneration process coordinates a variety of biological processes,[…]

A mechanism that allows a differentiated cell to reactivate as a stem cell revealed

Posted by on October 29th, 2014

The study, performed with fruit flies, describes a gene that determines whether a specialized cell conserves the capacity to become a stem cell again. Unveiling the genetic traits that favour the retention of stem cell properties is crucial for regenerative medicine. Published in Cell Reports, the article is the fruit of collaboration between researchers at[…]

Echoes of Spallanzani

Posted by on October 3rd, 2013

To the inspecting eyes of a budding scienziato the Reggian countryside was not simply teeming with life, it also posed myriad of intriguing questions. How do bug wings work and can you stick them back once you have removed them? How far are the stars that can be seen in the sky, and are natural[…]

Regenerative Medicine: From Biology to Therapy: 30 October-1 November 2013

Posted by on March 6th, 2013

Regenerative Medicine: From Biology to Therapy 30 October-1 November 2013 Few topics in contemporary medicine have attracted more attention than stem cells and their potential for enabling the discovery of new regenerative therapies. The aim of this new Wellcome Trust Scientific Conference is to understand the biology that underpins the success or failure of regeneration,[…]

The Hydra Summer School – training future stem cell biologists at the frontier

Posted by on October 17th, 2012

Despite the fact that I write this meeting post after three weeks of the summer school, I feel as though I’m writing directly from the Hydra Island, the experience and memories are that fresh! I was fortunate enough to be selected to participate in the 8th European Summer School on Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine[…]
