I am attracted to developmental and evolutionary questions that explain the huge diversity surrounding us, for example how animal body plans and cell types evolved. A specific case is the progenitor cells that generate diverse cell types in the adult. Address these questions in the context of regeneration in an unexplored model is exciting.
Project name: Restoring cell-type diversity in adults: regenerated cell types and the evolutionary origins of progenitor cells
Can animals regenerate perfectly a damaged organ?
