Peter Reddien wants to identify and understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms that control regeneration. Reddien and his team study the mechanisms that specify what parts to regenerate and the cellular basis for new tissue production. Their work utilizing planarians, a classic regeneration model, investigates how positional information and stem cells combine to regenerate tissues and tissue patterns. The team studies additional regenerative organisms and develops novel model systems to identify general regeneration principles.
