This course brings together leading scientists and students to study fundamental questions in regeneration biology and practical applications using extensive hands-on laboratories. Scientific core access comparative bioinformatics  includes Animal Resources, Bioinformatics, Microscopy, and Instrumentation. This course features extensive incorporation of  to identify key common regenerative signatures between species.

includes full registration Course enrollment  to our Learning from Nature: Comparative Biology of Tissue Regeneration and Aging Symposium.

Senior graduate students, postdocs, and junior faculty are encouraged to applyIn this dynamic environment, each student will:

  1. examine, characterize and compare regenerative potential across a wide array of species;
  2. gain practical guidance regarding animal care, handling and husbandry;
  3. combine microsurgical methods with state of the art molecular analysis; and
  4. join a growing network of colleagues studying regeneration.
