[RESEARCH INSIDER] Unlocking the Secrets of Regeneration

Did you know that planarian flatworms can regenerate missing tissues after an injury? How do they know which type of tissue to regenerate? Interestingly, scientists have discovered that the genes that planarians use to regenerate are also found in humans. Research Insider this week gets up close with Jia Zheng Woo, a research assistant in Whitehead Institute, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, U.S. to find out more about planarian flatworms and to unlock the “secrets” of regeneration.

[RESEARCH INSIDER] The Cell as City – Brick Roads and Buildings

Every cell in our bodies contains a “railway network”, a system of “train tracks” called microtubules that run between important destinations inside the cell and allow cargo to be carried from one place to another by motor proteins. Research Insider this week gets up close with Shu Yao Leong who is in her first year pursuing a PhD in Cellular Nanoscience at the University of Tübingen to find out more about her research in microtubule and intracellular dynamics at the nanocellular level.
