First Feature Image


Hydra is in a constant state of development, with all cells being replaced every three weeks by active stem cell populations. Using genomics approaches, our long-term goal is to solve the gene regulatory networks that drive cellular differentiation for all cell types in the animal. (Image Credit: Stefan Siebert)

Hydra has remarkable regenerative ability, including the ability to regenerate from a small piece of tissue or even reassemble from dissociated single cells. We are interested in understanding how injury signals trigger developmental pathways during regeneration. (Image Credit: Ben Cox)

Hydra stem cells drive nervous system regeneration and restoration of behaviors within two days following major injury. Our long-term goal is to understand how neurons are made and then assembled into circuits to regenerate a complete nervous system. (Image Credit: Ben Cox)
