Heart regeneration

Video July 21, 2016

Newts possess the ability to regenerate even parts of their hearts. The key to this amazing skill are dedifferentiated cells. Thomas Braun wants to uncover how mature heart cells can rewind their development program and be returned to an earlier, more primitive state. more
