Nice to meet you!
A quick word about our research...
How do stem cells cope with cellular stress? We investigate the nature of the stem cell repair response in a system with high regeneration capacity.
Are stem cells and animals with regenerative capacities of added value to toxicity testing? We developed an assay for evaluating carcinogens based on the planarian stem cell response.
Which signals drive tissue regeneration? We use a multilevel approach to investigate the function of redox molecules in stem cell fate and regeneration.
Nanoparticles, microplastics and heavy metals are everywhere, but are they safe? We investigate their impact on human health and aquatic organisms in a multidisciplinary setting.
Toxicity screening and reduced use of test animals?
