Our laboratory employs a multipronged approach to address one basic question: How can a discrete and defined degree of developmental potency be imposed onto a somatic cell so that it regains the ability to regenerate a functional tissue or structure? For this purpose, we use in vivo approaches in animal models (zebrafish heart regeneration), as well as cell-based paradigms built around human pluripotent stem cells.
