December 5, 2013
Mikko Airavaara’s project "Novel primate-specific GDNFOS-3 gene in health and neurodegeneration" and Nicolas Di-Poi’s "Molecular developmental genetics of craniofacial tissue morphogenesis and regeneration in reptiles" were awarded University's funding to research projects for the years 2014-2016.
Stem cells and regeneration research fortified in the Institute of Biotechnology
November 27, 2013
Developmental and stem cell biology is a crucial field for understanding tissue regeneration and possibilities for creating regenerative medicine. Vertebrate tissues have a tremendous diversity in how they regenerate or how they are repaired. Two new group leaders in BI, Nicolas Di-Poi and Pekka Katajisto, have stem cells as a part of their research.
