Development Special Issue: Imaging development, stem cells and regeneration

Posted by on November 3rd, 2020

Development invites you to submit your latest research to our upcoming special issue: Imaging development, stem cells and regeneration. Imaging-based approaches have long played a role in the field of developmental biology. However, recent technical advances now provide us with the ability to visualise cell and developmental processes at extraordinary resolution and in real-time. From[…]

PhD Opportunity in Regenerative Biology

Posted by on November 2nd, 2020

The study of regenerative biology aims to elucidate the innate ability of organisms to repair tissues or organs after they have been removed or damaged. During vertebrate regeneration, tissue damage causes the immediate release of signals that initiate wound closure and initiate regeneration. This project uses larval zebrafish to study how cells respond to when[…]
