The Sive Lab studies vertebrate development, using frogs and zebra fish (pictured) because they are amenable to genetic, molecular, and live imaging approaches. The red in the photo is actin, the blue nuclei, the green ER.
The Reddien Lab uses planarians as a model organism for studying regeneration. Following RNA interference of the gene beta-catenin-1 and infliction of multiple injuries, this planarian regenerated six heads.
The Boyer Lab investigates how to stimulate cardiac muscle cells to regenerate by manipulating their underlying genetic circuitry. In this image, cardiac cells are stained in green and the nuclei of newly dividing cells are shown in pink.
