Undergraduate student fits one more piece to the regeneration puzzle

Giacomo Glotzer, an undergraduate student from Yale University, spent a year in the lab of Elly Tanaka to investigate the molecular pathways that promote regeneration in the axolotl limb, supervised by PhD student Pietro Tardivo. Together, they report in the journal eLife that the unusual activity of a well-known signalling pathway promotes the production of an important molecule for limb regeneration. Giacomo tells us more about his experience.
