The capacity for complex tissue regeneration is unevenly distributed across species. Unlike human, zebrafish possess a remarkable potential to regenerate tissues such as amputated appendages and damaged heart muscles. Interest of my laboratory is to understand how and what genetic and epigenetic factors control tissue regeneration using adult zebrafish as a model system.
