Research and Projects

  • Regeneration in Planaria and Zebrafish

    We are examing regeneration in Planaria and Zebrafish in the Biotechnology and Forensics Laboratory at BMCC. The primary focus here is to use Planaria and Zebrafish as animal models to examine a number of signaling properties (growth, environmental, toxicity) essential for successful regeneration with collaborative studies with members of BMCC faculty.
