Self-introduction
To elucidate the cellular and molecular basis for the high regenerative capacity of urodele amphibians, we are conducting research using Iberian ribbed newts, Pleurodeles waltl as model animals. We are working on the establishment of highly quantitative bio-imaging methods with several biosensors and newt cell culture systems, to understand the phenomenon of dedifferentiation from differentiated cells, which is the key to initiation of regeneration.
