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[…]

The Drosophila fly brings to light the role of morphogens in limb growth

Posted by on July 5th, 2017

• Scientists at IRB Barcelona clarify the function of the genes that drive wing development in the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. • Published in the journal eLife, this study unveils that the Dpp morphogen is necessary for wing growth but that its gradient does not govern this process. • Understanding the development of limbs in[…]
