How does the axolotl regenerate its brain after injury? – an unimaginable feat in humans!
Elly Tanaka and two international collaborators received an ERC Synergy Grant to find out.
Elly and her team at IMP aim to develop the axolotl model system to enable a thorough investigation of central nervous system regeneration.
The team will use the knowledge gained from this species to develop strategies for regenerating tissues in mammals.
