Regeneration is a fundamental attribute of all living things, whether it be simple tissue restoration or the complete replacement of lost body parts such as limbs, tails or even heads. Dr. Alejandro Sanchez Alvarado's research seeks to identify and to study the molecular components underpinning this phenomenon. His lab is approaching this problem by analyzing and manipulating the regenerative properties of an invertebrate organism, chiefly the freshwater planarian Schmidtea mediterranea.
