My interests are in the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying regeneration in salamanders, particularly limb regeneration. Limb regeneration proceeds by formation of the limb blastema, a mound of mesenchymal stem cells. The distinctive questions center around the origin and identity of the blastema.
