Ulm University

Prof. Elly Tanaka will give a talk on Thursday, May 12, 11:00 am.

In Cooperation with the Graduate School Prof. Gilbert Weidinger (Biochemistry and Molecular Biology) would like to invite you to the following talk on Thursday, May 12, 11:00 am in N27, multimedia-room:

Prof. Elly Tanaka, Director, Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden will talk about „Molecular Basis of Appendage Regeneration“.

Elly Tanaka is one of the world‐leaders in regenerative biology research. She has adopted modern
lineage‐tracing, transgenesis and knock‐out techniques to studies of regenerative mechanisms in
salamanders, and thus has made break‐through discoveries that challenge long‐held textbook
knowledge. In particular, her lab has uncovered the cellular basis of limb regeneration (Nature 2009,
Science 2013, Cell Stem Cell 2014), and has identified key molecular regulators of regeneration (Nature
