Name: Dr. Yoshihiko Umesono
Position: Professor, Director of Research
Research Description:
Regeneration is one of the most intriguing phenomena in post-embryonic development, made possible by extraordinary plasticity of cells in response to wounding in a context-dependent manner. "How do planarians regenerate their missing tissues and organs by activating pluripotent stem cells?" "How do Xenopus tadpoles regenerate their missing tails?" Unveiling the molecular logics behind these questions may contribute to developing better treatments for damaged tissues and organs in human.
